Most people operate under the assumption that a job has to be boring, stressful, or frustrating. However, there’s a small group of people that actually enjoys waking up and going to work each morning. They say that if you love what you do you never work a day in your life. But it can be difficult to know whether you’re really where you want to be. Some people stick to their job waiting for better improvements while some switch over to other organisations in search for greener pastures. Hence, the choice of good job is in the mind set of person who judges with his/her rational approach combined with emotional judgement.
The following are a few pointers to the fact that you have chosen the right job.
1. You find it rewarding.
The first telltale sign that you actually enjoy your job is that you find the work you do intrinsically rewarding. In other words, money isn’t your only motivating factor. You thoroughly enjoy seeing results and aren’t merely passing the time or waiting for your paycheck to arrive. That’s what good jobs do – they make you feel rewarded.
2. Job satisfaction.
Our souls needs to be contented at the end of the day. No job will be giving a perfect 100% satisfaction to our mind. This aspect is a trivial matter that needs to be handled within our mind. Most of our work throughout the day deals human emotions and principles that we have adopted. It’s sometimes referred to as Ethics. Once the ethics are tuned into our lives then this factor will definitely help a person to derive a job satisfaction.
3. You are engaged at work.
Being engaged at work is important, and the Gallup study shows us that employee engagement is rare. If you are engaged at work, then this is a good sign that you have the right job for you. A 2013 study from the Institute of Management Studies in India considered what makes an employee engaged (according to the study, an engaged worker is involved in and enthusiastic about their work, and attempts to further the organization’s interests).
