Dare to ask yourself if it’s worth it. If you can’t find the part of your job that you like, or if you can see yourself turning into the person you said you would never be, consider the reasons. It may not be a new job that you need, just a new direction. Do you like yourself when you are doing this job? If not, are there changes you can make to the way you do your job or is the job itself the problem? Do you need to be doing a different position within the same company? Are additional responsibilities taking you away from the work you were hired to do? Maybe all that’s needed is some refocusing. Learn to say “no”. As much as you can choose the things you spend your time on, don’t attend events or meetings only because everyone expects it.

Asking yourself why you do your job doesn’t mean you’re dissatisfied, just self-aware. This awareness can lead to greater job satisfaction, increased sense of well-being and a little more control over what you do, rather than just “going along for the ride”. For some, it may be time for a change — if so, don’t be afraid of it. Change isn’t necessarily bad; it’s just different. For the rest of us, take a look around, you may find you’ve got a great view.

Take a look at your life. How would you describe it? Contented? Rushed? Exciting? Stressful? Moving forward? Holding back? For many of us it’s all of the above at times. There are things we dream of doing one day, there are things we wish we could forget. In the Bible, it says that Jesus came to make all things new. What would your life look like if you could start over with a clean slate?

【参考译文】

敢于问自己是否值得。如果你不能在工作中找到感兴趣的部分,或者你看到自己正在转变为那种你永远都不想成为的人,那么考虑一下原因。你需要的可能的不是一份新工作,而是一个新的方向。你喜欢处于工作时的那个自己吗?如果不喜欢,你能否改变一下自己的工作方法,还是工作本身存在问题?你是否需要在这个公司调换一下职位?是否因为承担额外的责任而让你脱离了本职工作?或许满足所有需要的就是重新定位。要学会说“不”。尽量选择做那些你应该花费时间的工作,而不要因为其他人的希望就去做其他事情或参加别的会议。

问问自己你为何做这项工作,这并不意味着你不满足,而是自知之明。这种意识可以引导你获得更大的工作满意感,增加自我满足的感觉,并且更好地把握自己的工作,而不仅仅是“随波逐流”。对有些人来说,可能是改变的时候了——如果这样,不要害怕。改变未心是坏事,只是不同而已。而对于我们中的其他人来说,环顾四周,你也许发现有了全新的观点。

审视一下自己的生活。你怎么描述它呢?满足?匆忙?刺激?紧迫?前进?还是后退?对许多人来说,生活经常都是以上这些情形。有些事情我们梦想着有一天可以去做,而有些事情我们希望可以忘却。圣经上说,耶稣的诞生使一切焕然一新。如果你以新的姿态重新开始,你的生活会是怎样的呢?

【人生启迪】

处在生活中的我们总是在抱怨,学习、工作、生活总是不尽如人意,不是这里有挫折就是那里遇到了困难,但是我们从来都没有想过,这究竟是生活的问题还是我们自己态度的问题,如果只是怨天尤人,那么也许我们永远都要生活在暗无天日的生活中了,那么就从现在开始改变自己的态度吧,也许你会发现自己一直讨厌的生活也会绽放出不一样的光彩。
