Leaving a job, or change my thinking?


Hello coaches! I’ve used self-coaching to like my job, which I previously hated. I love my company, I love my department, I’m good at what I do, but I do not love my tasks and responsibilities. I dread them. I’ve used self-coaching to see what I can choose to think about the tasks and responsibilities. Today I discovered that the end goal of developing advanced research skills in my job is not something that I particularly care about or want to achieve. So I feel like I’m spending a lot of time self-coaching to do my daily job, but I don’t even really care about the end result of getting really good at this job. There is no spark, and it doesn’t align with the 5 most important things I want to do in my life. I also have a side business and am in coaching certification, and I experience sparked joy with those activities. SO – I just don’t feel like putting in the daily energy it takes for me to like my job – is this a good reason to leave? I don’t hate it, I know I could choose to like it, but when I don’t even want the end result, or to even put in the daily work to like it – I feel like leaving is the answer. Or am I not managing my mind around this enough? I do so many TDL’s to manage feeling 50/50 about the job – it’s not like I expect to love it 100%. But even getting to 50/50 takes effort. I would rather be coaching myself in a job that supports my top 5 things I want to do in my life. Thank you!
