Logic Of The Day: 15.05.2019.
Feeling stuck in your career? Before making any drastic decisions, think about how you can add your passion into the mix. “You can make a mundane job better by bringing out your natural strengths,” says Dr. Goeglein. “Keep feeding and nurturing the things you care about.”
Maybe you’re interested in becoming a musician, because it brings out your natural strengths of honesty and authenticity. You might feel that you’re falling behind on this dream by taking a car salesman job, but that’s not the case.
Honesty and authenticity are highly valued when it comes to customer service. Therefore, you’re still playing up those strengths in a slightly different atmosphere.
Plus, you can hone in on relevant skills that will serve your big-picture goal. For instance, work toward becoming a better expert around the sound systems that you’re selling.
“Interests aren’t something you leave at home,” says Dr. Goeglin. “It’s your job to bring them to life.”
At the end of the day, an “okay” job will only hold you back as much as you let it. Your passion might feel slightly out of reach, but you’re not entirely powerless.
