10 Things to do If You really, really Hate Your Job

  1. Begin focusing on what you want instead of how much you want to escape.
  2. Create an image that describes you in your job.
  3. Think of developing skills, not serving time. Take every course that's offered and focus on skill that can lay a foundation for your own business or next job.
  4. Focus on satisfactory, not superior performance.
  5. What conflict are you escaping? Dishonesty? Corporate greed? Hypocrisy? Allow yourself to wonder if these qualities are mirrored in your own life - or even in your mind.
  6. Put on your shield and armor when you enter your workplace.
  7. Give yourself a gift every day - a splurge of time or sensual taste buds.
  8. Find at least one thing in your life to appreciate; the softness of your cat's fur, the winter sky, the spontaneous hug from a friend.
  9. Tune in to your intuition before deciding what to do next. Meditate and listen to the world around you.
  10. Write this down somewhere: After you've left - and you will - all that time will seem to have gone in the blink of an eye.
