If you’re unhappy in your job, you are not alone. Plenty of people — many with stable, high-paying, interesting jobs — feel lost in their careers. If you experience this anxiety, try these three things:
- Forget money. Money matters but not at the cost of doing something you love. If you are unhappy in a job, an expense account and a six-figure salary won’t change that.
- Try new things. Challenge yourself. Ask your boss for a chance to lead a new business. Speak at an industry conference. Take on a special project in another part of the company.
- Get to know yourself. Spend time thinking about your passions. Don’t settle on the first thing, consider many options.
