Are you making as much effort in your job as you could be?

Everyone can get complacent with their job, a lot of that can be to do with boredom or a lack of variety in your role. So a good move would be to decipher and remember exactly why you took on that job in the first place. If the wages were desirable what has changed? Do you want more, could you do more? If it was the job satisfaction that made you take that step into your current job role has anything changed? Do you still love it? Could you be doing more? The main questions would be whether or not you are ready for the next step in your career, more responsibility or workload? All of which can help you gain more clarity on your career and the way you want it to go moving forward.

Are you wearing the right work attire and do you look professional?

Boredom can creep into any job role. With that, you can get a little fed up with your daily routine and productivity. So your main focus would be how you approach your working day. Do you dress professionally in the right work attire? Perhaps you are a medical professional, and this is when you would see Uniforms and Scrubs being a vital part of your job. Just as much as any professional in an office environment would want to look the par. Everyone can make a snap judgment on someone from their appearance, if you don’t look the part for work, then when you see yourself you certainly won’t feel the part yourself. It can have a detrimental effect on your mindset.

Have you got the right mindset and goals in place?

On the subject of mindset, people can often forget how much of a powerful tool it is, and how much influence it can have on your daily decisions. Having a negative mindset can certainly make you question your choices, especially when it comes to your career. Focus on your thoughts for a moment and listen to the voice in your head, are you negative or positive about something? If you are struggling with your mindset then there some great techniques and guides online to help you become more positive.

When there is a movement, there is always a counter-movement. It happens in microcosm, a response to the mildest of things. If the general agreement in the populace is that a particular song is the best by a particular artist, a secondary group will appear purely for the purpose of disagreeing, of applying contrarian practices.

If you don’t have as much time or if your mobility isn’t quite as good, why not go for a smaller dog like a terrier mix or a chihuahua?
