5 Signs It's Time for You to Change Careers

Many people hate change; contemplating the unknown is scary. So many stick with familiar things even though they no longer fit. This is especially true of careers. Sometimes people get stuck in a career direction or work environment that makes them terribly unhappy, and they stay there because it's tough to change careers once you have gained experience, power, and good compensation.


People often end up in the wrong careers by accident. They start out with a job and become proficient, so they advance and make a good living. They may even start a company in that field. They get so focused on growth, meeting objectives, or making the money to support their lifestyle, they don't realize how toxic their life has become.

Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

I left School before any of these became too engrained. I look back in incredible experiences with students and some colleagues with considerable fondness. Other colleagues and bosses less so.

Sometimes you just end up following the wrong career path and it takes someone else to objectively point it out. Here are 5 signs you can identify on your own.

Graeme Reid's curator insight, July 28, 2014 6:36 PM

If you recognise these signs then it may be time to consider a career change.

James Cracknell's curator insight, July 29, 2014 4:24 AM

Recognise any of these? - I felt many of them in my career but one that is not mentioned is guilt. Guilt that you are doing a job that many would crave for; guilt that you feel this way at all; guilt that you constantly keep asking that there must be more to life yet how would others that you love feel about a sudden urge to change?

Student Motivation: It’s More Complicated Than We Think

Student Motivation: It’s More Complicated Than We Think | Leadership, Innovation, and Creativity | Scoop.it
Motivation—there are two kinds: intrinsic, which involves doing something because we want to do it, and extrinsic, which is doing something because we have to do it. A negative relationship exists between the two.

Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

Motivation is complex and very individual.

Sharrock's curator insight, January 15, 2014 12:24 PM

excerpt: "In his research he identified 16 distinct universal reinforcements that he developed into an assessment tool called the Reiss Motivation Profile. “Everybody is motivated by the 16 universal reinforcements, but not in the same way. Individuals show reliable individual differences in how they prioritize these 16 reinforcements.” (pp. 154-155) These 16 reinforcements are listed in the article and they include the following motivations (among others): eating, the desire for food; curiosity, the desire for understanding; independence, the desire for self-reliance; social contact, the desire for peer companionship; and vengeance, the desire to confront those who offend."
