When Is It Time to Make a Career Transition

“Our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers” – M. Scott Peck

 

 Do you find yourself staring blankly at your computer screen? Do you struggle to find energy, passion, and motivation in your career? Maybe some of you even feel as if you’re losing your sanity, and just simply “can’t take it anymore”.

Job satisfaction in America has continued its downward spiral for the eighth straight year below the 1987 historical level, according to The Conference Board 2014 Job Satisfaction Survey. It seems despite being a country of wealth, freedom, and prosperity more and more Americans are losing interest and satisfaction in their work, and some are checking out of the workforce altogether. The trend is upsetting, but tells the tale of the American worker’s deep sense of unhappiness, apathy, and dissatisfaction with his/her work.
