Be more fulfilled at work


  1. Reflect on what makes work engaging for you.
    Think about times when you've been completely absorbed in an activity. What were you doing? Identify the elements that made it engaging. Was it the autonomy, the clear goals, the variety, or the immediate feedback? Use these insights to evaluate potential jobs. You can also use this to identify how you can make your job more engaging.
  2. Seek opportunities to help others in your work.
    Look for ways to make a positive impact on others through your job. This could be as simple as supporting your colleagues, volunteering for projects that benefit society, or even incorporating social responsibilities into your current role. Understanding the difference you can make through your work fosters a sense of purpose and fulfillment, which contributes to increased job satisfaction.
  3. Enhance your career capital.
    Choose one in-demand skill in your industry and set a tangible goal for mastering it, such as completing a specific online course or tutorial within the next two months. Upskilling sets the foundation for career success, along with networking.
  4. Opt for a Nurturing Work Environment
    Choose to work with people who provide encouragement and steer clear of harmful workplace atmospheres. The influence of your superiors and peers can greatly affect how content you feel at work.
  5. Improve your workplace environment.
    Before joining a new team or to improve your current situation, list the qualities of a supportive work culture and compare them to your environment. If you're job searching, ask specific questions about company culture in interviews. If you're employed, propose one initiative that could foster a more positive atmosphere, such as a regular team-building activity or feedback session.
  6. Have a work-life balance.
    Over the next two weeks, track how you spend your time outside of work. Identify any areas where work may be encroaching on your personal time and vice versa. Then, decide on one activity that you can reduce or eliminate to make more room for personal interests or relaxation. Communicate your work boundaries clearly to colleagues and superiors, if necessary.
