Why the Monday Blues?

Monday, July 1st, 2013

Do you dread Mondays? Ask yourself one question, ‘Why?’

With the constant changes and the ever-increasing pressures we face each day, it is likely that at some point during the course of our careers we have felt that ‘all was not as it should be’.

One factor that has contributed to feelings of indecision and insecurity is the systematic “flattening” of traditional hierarchical companies. As a result, the traditional career ‘ladder’ has been shortened and the width at the top seems narrower than ever. Progression requires greater leaps in skill and experience.

Whatever the reason, if you dread the thought of Monday, you need to figure out why.

Ask yourself:

–       Am I dissatisfied with my career, even though others may think I am a “success”?

–       Do I feel that I cannot control or influence my career progress?

–       Is the idea of doing something different, even outside my current company attractive?

–       Am I unsure about my future with my current company?

If you answered ‘Yes’ to one or more of the above questions, you need to ask yourself, “Am I in the right job?”

Take control and if you think a new career is in order for you to avoid the ‘Monday blues’, arrange a meeting with one of our consultants by contacting  +44 (0) 28 9076 9900
