It's may not be that you're bored with your job, it's that you're bored with the habits you have in your job. The same routine habits you engage in to get work done, may be keeping you from being alive, engaged, innovative and fully using your skills and knowledge.
Many long term employees claim that they are good at their job, so why try to do it differently- or try to get any better? What they're doing is working.
Yet, these same routine habits we rely on to easily glide through our day, may also be the thing that makes you slide into boredom. Auto pilot sets in when you do the same thing over and over again. Eventually, we pass the point of efficiency and a downward spiral towards boredom sets in. This neutral position doesn't challenge our attitudes or support growth. Eventually we slice away at productivity.
Remember, the habits you have in your job, are different then the job itself. There is still a lot of adventure, challenge and growth left in any job. In fact, if you don't try to innovate, your job may be replaced. Over 50% of the jobs we have today, will be replaced by technology in 20 years.
Stop making a living and start making a life by challenging your daily routines and discover new and innovative ways to do your work.
