3 Tips to Fall Back in Love with Your Job
It's Not You, It's Me
Does the sound of your boss’s monotone already have you dreaming about the weekend? It’s time to fall back in love with your job with these three rules of enchantment from Tim Leberecht, author of The Business Romantic, and The List’s Holly Morgan.
Make the Familiar Strange
According to Leberecht the key is to bring a little bit of discomfort to add newness and novelty. This can be done by talking to a stranger on the way to work, switching desks, and even switching roles.
Create Deeper Connections
If we spend 70% to 75% of our working lives at work, we should be creating more meaningful relationships with our colleagues. Take your relationships to the next level by taking it outside of the conference room and into a restaurant. Have dinner and talk about topics outside of work.
Add a Little Mystery
Do something surprising daily at work. Even companies are embracing this idea. Prime Purpose holds meetings and events in the dark and Etsy has a secret society, The Ministry of Unusual Business, which is in charge of bringing happiness and surprises to their work environment.
Bringing romance to your job and your career is on our To Do List.
