Are you bored in your career? Do you need to change companies or do you need to change industries and get a new career? Being bored in your career is a waste of your skills, talents, education, and something we can never get back – time!
Time is not your friend when it comes to your career. Your age matters and will be an issue the longer you wait. The time to change is now! There are a lot of careers and positions that you can do today that you won’t be able to do in the future. It’s just a fact.
There are age limits to a lot of careers. Some are obvious like military, policeman, fireman, pilot, flight attendant, and professional athlete, just to name a few. Some careers are not so obvious, but don’t fool yourself they also have age limits. It’s just a fact, the older you get the harder it will be to change careers so don’t wait until it’s too late, you must do it now!
We don’t live forever; so don’t live your life like you will. Don’t waste your talents in a dead end job. If you’re currently out-of-work, but you were bored in your last position, find something you really want to do with your life. Don’t take the easy way out and get back into the same type of position with a similar company when you were bored. Do something new and exciting. Find something where you can utilize your talents.
This isn’t easy, I know that, but you will be happier and more successful if you find something that really interests you. Not what your spouse, family members, or friends think is right and interesting for you, but what YOU find interesting. And don’t follow others when it comes to your career. We are all different, so what is good for others might not be good for you. Listen to yourself.
When you’re doing your research, if you’re changing careers or looking for a new career, do not limit yourself on location. Again, this is very important, DO NOT LIMIT YOURSELF ON LOCATION. You’re not going to live forever, so if the ideal position requires you to relocate to another location, do it!
Believe me, if you’re bored in your current career you won’t be very successful. You can fake it for a while, but eventually it will catch up to you. Don’t spend your life bored in your current industry or career – you must change it! Again, time is not your friend when it comes to careers, each day you waste will cost you. I hope this helps.
Good luck to you!
