A lot of people think that their job is overwhelming.
They tell me that if they could just quit or get a different job, they wouldn’t be so overwhelmed.
They dream of doing work they’re passionate about to never have to feel stressed about their job again.
But here’s the truth!!!
You are in charge of bringing the ease, the fun, the no-stress environment to what you’re doing. It is not your job’s job!
It’s not your to-do list’s job to make you feel good. It’s not your boss’s job to make you feel good. If it’s a side hustle, it’s not your side hustles job.
And when you really get that, the ball is back in your court.
I love my job. This was my dream career at one point and I turned it into a reality.
But there are days I feel overwhelmed. There are days I feel stressed. There are days I don’t want to show up.
But I don’t get rid of my job!
I simply manage the narrative around my tasks and workday.
That’s not to say that you don’t have preferences or bigger dreams outside your current job. That’s not what I’m saying at all.
BUT, don’t think for one second that overwhelm just evaporates with a “better” job.
If you don’t learn how to manage it now, you won’t be able to manage it at your next job.
