Nature of the Beast

It’s easy to get disenfranchised with your job and your coworkers. The sometimes mundane nature of going to work creates an easy environment to feel this way. Does this mean you should leave that job when these feelings become overwhelming? Or is it your job to frame things differently and figure out a way to get yourself engaged again?

This is my dilemma for the day. I used to think that leaving and finding new employment was the solution, but who is to say that any other job would be better than this one? The grass is not always greener on the other side, which has been proven time and time again.

Perhaps I should make a pro/con list to figure out if the benefits outweight the negatives. I have a feeling there is a lot more benefit to staying…but wow, what a shift in thought for me. I was 100% convinced I would leave this job after business school, but now I really do not think that I will.
