Eight signs you love your job
How do you know if you have found a job? It’s not always evident. We selected eight signs that you are passionate about your job and doing what you love. But first, subscribe to our Telegram channel. We often publish such valuable articles!
We used to complain about our work, which makes it unclear if there are people in the world who like what they do. Of course, there is. It’s just that these people, as a rule, do what they love and do not consider it necessary to expand on this matter.
More than once, we have said that the best job is to do what you like. The work should be such that you do not have time to keep track of time and enjoy it all the time.
Find out if there are professions that suit you better than the one you have now!
1. You don’t have much free time and like it
The constant flow of new work does not make you resentful and angry. On the contrary, you are in the flow, and the work seems to be done by itself. Hemingway often stopped writing even though he still had ideas. All because he wanted the next day, he also had something to write about and did not have to coax words out of himself.
So are you at your job? Always have a to-do list for the next day. And you love it.
2. You see the result of your work
Feeling that your work is helpful is the best reward that can be. Even though work can sometimes be challenging, the thought that it will make the world a little better, and people’s lives easier or more convenient, makes you feel better.
3. You try to be better
If you enjoy your job, you will constantly find ways to improve. And if you don’t like it, you will get worse. Seminars, self-education, advice from reputable people in your profession — you do not regret the time spent on all this. If learning something new in your profession seems like terrible boredom, then it’s probably time for you to change something. Change jobs.
4. You talk about work in your spare time
You can’t stop talking about your work, even if it’s not easy. But know the measure. Not all people are as lucky with work as you are, and many do not want to hear a word about work in their free time. Respect the wishes of others, and don’t be too intrusive.
5. You feel like the day has just begun, even though it’s already lunchtime
It is invalid if your working day starts at noon. You have done a few small tasks, answered a few letters, and are ready to start serious work. Looking at the clock, you realize it’s already noon.
Where did the whole morning go? If you are familiar with this state of flow, then you are in the right place. Read Life in the flow: how to enjoy work and everyday activities.
6. You are inspired by the people around you
You admire your employees’ tasks and are always ready to help them. You like the team you work for, and your colleagues inspire you. Usually, when we feel good, we see only the good in the people around us. So if you admire the work of others, you probably love your work.
7. You look at your life in terms of work
You enjoy your work and see nothing wrong with thinking about it in your spare time. You solve problems, think of new ideas and reflect on work issues. And all this even when you are not sitting in the office. Are you a workaholic? Maybe. But what’s wrong with that if you like it?
8. You are not afraid of Monday
Monday is like doomsday for people who don’t love their jobs. Everyone is waiting for it with horror, dreaming it will pass as soon as possible. Leave the scheme “weekdays — weekends — get drunk — lie down — weekdays again” for those who hate their work and are constantly waiting for the weekend.
Look for a job you want to get up in the morning and devote time to. What’s the point of spending 40 hours a week doing something you don’t like? Read How to Love It in five steps if you don't love your job.
