Give yourself this gift.
Think about what you love and hate about your job.
Think about the times in your career and your life when you were thriving. You were doing great work, it felt great and the crowds were cheering.
Now think about the people and irritants that drain your energy. What do you dread about your job?
Come up with a plan. Decide how you can change or re-define the interactions in your day to be better for you.
Re-write the drama
Fire the writers who put you in annoying situations. Re-write the screen-play for the time you spend at work.
Identify the type of work that makes you feel great and take on more of it. Create a strategy to defend against, eliminate, or change the things that drain your energy.
This is not selfish. If you focus on doing things specifically to make yourself thrive at work, you will find that you will become even better at your job, have more to offer your team, and you will deliver more value to your company. And you’ll be happier.
Have a Wonderful Holiday!
