Low Career Libido?
“There’s no spark any more.” “I just feel empty…” “The magic’s gone.” Is this how you feel about your job?
Like a long-term relationship, even a job you adore can start to get… well, a bit boring after a while.
If so, then you might just have got low career libido! Like in a relationship, you have to work on it to avoid boredom and disillusionment.
Here are 3 simple suggestions to rekindle the spark in your job: Try something new Learn something new Reconnect with your bigger ‘why’
The primitive parts of our brains are fascinated with the new—or, more specifically, a new twist on something we already thought we knew.
1. Try something new: Pick just one thing to change up this week at work and note the impact it makes on your engagement. Think new task, working from home, meeting new people, etc.
2. Learn something new: Learning something new is a great way to bring the spark back. Choose one book, blog, or podcast to consume this week that might expand your education.
3. Reconnect with your bigger ‘why’: Take a walk down memory lane and try to recall what got you excited to go to work when you first started your job. Brainstorm some ways to incorporate those things back into your daily work.
