Many studies have indicated that being engaged and passionate about your career has lots of benefits. You are less likely to suffer from the consequences of stress and more likely to feel energised outside of work. Within work your productivity, career prospects and creativity are all likely to improve.
How engaged you are with your work may be down to many complex factors including; feeling authentic in your role, having sufficient skills and training, being appreciated, being free from distractions as well as being rewarded fairly. The switch from feeling engaged and energised to feeling isolated and disengaged can happen very quickly. If the factors underlying disengagement are not identified quickly, this may lead you to feel that the only option is to head for the door or your employer may make that choice for you.
It’s really useful to monitor how you feel about work and then examine what works well for you and what leaves you cold. Look for the things that give you a buzz and see how you can invest more of your time in them. Make the most of the positive people that surround you; they are there to celebrate achievements and strengths with and are a great asset when times are tough. Strive to be the best that you can be, but count your blessings and keep your feet on the ground.
