3 Tips To Make Your Work More Fulfilling

Muovo would like to share with you the following article, first published by Greater Good Blog.

1. Accept Confusion.
If you're feeling confused about your next career move, the good news is: you're not alone. If you take a quick look at career websites, you will find well over 12,000 different jobs. Confusion, it seems, is natural. Accept it. Confront it. And, eventually, build your way up to overcome it.

2. Don't Pigeonhole Yourself. 
Many people are enticed by personality tests, which claim to be able to assess your character then point you towards a job that is just right for you.

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), the world’s most popular psychometric test, which places you in one of sixteen personality types is argued as an unreliable source of test. Try retaking the test after five weeks. You will be amazed to find that there is around a 50 percent chance that you will be placed into a different personality category.

Don't let anyone tell you what you can and can’t be on the basis of a personality pigeonhole they want to put you in.

3. Look at work as a life-long experiment.
Changing career is a frightening prospect. But ultimately, there is no avoiding the fact that it is a risk.

Ask successful career changers how to overcome the fear and most say the same thing: in the end you have to stop thinking and just do it. That may be why nearly all cultures have recognised that to live a meaningful and vibrant existence, we need to take some chances—or else we might end up looking back on our lives with regret.
