Have you seen the Reed #lovemondays adverts? I love the idea, it’s great to love Monday….. Tuesday and every other day of the week. Life is so much better when you enjoy your Monday and know that the rest of the week will bring more of the same. I can honestly say that nearly all of my working life has involved loving Mondays.
There’s a slight difference in my approach though. The Reed advert implies that you need a change of career but I’ll help you to look at whether or not you really need to do that. It’s often tempting to look over the fence at the greener grass. To wonder if you are in the right job, or failing that are you working for the right company. You’ll be happier somewhere else. Won’t you?
In truth that really may not be the case. With a little bit of reflection sometimes it’s possible that just a small change will make your working life happier and that may even be a change in your attitude or thought pattern. It really could be quite simple to make the changes you need to make Mondays more loved.
Let’s all Love Monday
In the coaching room we’d start by looking at what brought you to where you are currently with work. What made you choose that type of work, this job in particular, the company you work for? We’d also look at what has changed since you started. One of my jobs involved the company that I worked for being taken over twice in 18 months and the culture of the company changed quite considerably. In another company though, I changed role four times and ended up staying with them for 10 years.
There’s a tendency to think that you need to change company or career but don’t jump out of the frying pan into the fire. Get some perspective on what is really happening for you and what you really want before you make any changes. If you aren’t sure…give me a call on 01908 368607 and let’s find out.
