Thinking about the different types of activity that we are doing is important. In terms of the demand on us and our interest in them, but also the fit between the activity and our skills. 

  • Are the activities you are doing at work stimulating? If everything is feeling a bit mundane or easy, is it time to ask your manager for a new task/challenge?
  • Do your skills match the task demands? If tasks are regularly too easy or too hard, we can become avoidant of them because they can be overwhelming or boring. Consider your work plan/tasks and ask for reviews with your manager and training as and when required.
  • What are your interests? What really gets you motivated? When people are invested in a task their performance is often much better. Think about the work you most enjoy and try to take on more of that.
