Carry on

Empower yourself in the workplace. Because there are more soul-crushing things than hating your job.

so, it’s up to us to make the best things and try to improve them.  This is what I learned from my current job.

  1. Take one work at a time – Because it’s not possible to do all the things at once.
  2. When your boss is unpredictably moody – when he/she starts to rant, take a few deep breath and let them finish. (I imagine them as a possessed creature from a horror movie to avoid mood disorder)
  3. When your manager plays favourites – if you’re the favourite, look for opportunities. if you’re not the boss’ favourite but you like the job and want to improve, initiate a conversation about what else you can do to improve performance. Don’t just sit and avoid.
  4. When there’s low morale throughout the organisation – It’s very hard to stay focused and motivated when your colleague constantly talks about how much they hate working at your organisation. It’s very hard to Survive in negative work culture. So, just try to stay focused on your work and adopt a positive attitude towards work, Colleague,  everyday challenges or whatever life brings you.
  5.  When no one accepts accountability – it’s worse to have everyone on your team pointing fingers at you. so it’s up to you to maintain deadline and create a check and balance system to hold yourself.

I work in an association. where I have 5 bosses and have to deal with 5 different minds every day. but I like what I do. Only people around me makes it difficult to survive. But working in such a challenging environment makes you strong. So, i just face the reality head – on. (And someday I am like “I may look calm, but inside my mind, I’ve killed you 20 times, in 5 minutes, in 20 different ways”)

“Because sometimes carrying on, just carrying on is the superhuman achievement.”- Albert Camus.

  1. I think that your current situation sounds terrible and you should be looking for other opportunities. Surround yourself with like minded people who share a similar vision and your work will no longer be a chore. With so many negative contributions to your day, you might think that it is making you stronger, but from a similar experience, I believe that you will find it is actually breaking down your spirit as you are surrounded by people who have completely the opposite approach to their work life. Ultimately, it’s up to you, but life is too short to be in a job where you are miserable!

  4. Great things you share, you right , I can add some of what you learnt to my record, so that I can apply it, it’s useful to satisfy your management about what you do or improving performance. Some other organizations if you do well, they will still criticize you, great post,Jameela! ๐Ÿ‘

    1. Thanks for sharing kind friend ๐Ÿ˜Š But I believe that if we like our job or whatever we are doing, we should never miss a chance to improve our performance whether management like it or not. Ultimately we are doing it for our own personal growth. But yeah one must not put efforts beyond certain limits. We should not compromise our dignity and ultimate life goal HAPPINESS to please someone.
