How to Find the Positives in Your Workday: Putting Your Challenges into Perspective

Posted

Does your job sometimes feel like a real downer?

Whether you work in hands-on patient care or in a support role, you may find it difficult to keep things in perspective and realize the positive aspects of your workday – and to a greater extent, your choice of a career.

Before you make any drastic moves, remember that having a positive attitude – at least most of the time – is all it really takes to stay on track. So, even on your most discouraging days, keep these tips in mind. The big picture, and your outlook, will be a lot brighter as a result.

Set Achievable Personal Goals

Create time-bound, achievable goals for yourself. Approaching goal setting from this angle will help to build your confidence and, in turn, reshape your thinking.

Surround Yourself with Top Talent

You need people who will challenge you, appreciate you, and make you better at what you do. You need synergy.

  • Make a list of the five people with whom you spend the most time at work. Gauge whether they are a positive influence on you and your performance, or not. Assign each person a numerical value from 1 to 10. Make friends with whomever you want, but when it comes to on-the-job functions, this will help you determine who to listen to, learn from, and generally spend more time with.

Listen To Your Instincts

According to experts including the Harvard Business Review, people are usually capable of making the right decisions – including how to make their workday better and their career path more promising – when they trust their gut decisions.

  • You’re a healthcare pro, so your tendency is to rely on research and data to make decisions. No problem with that, of course! But confidence in your instincts is a critical component of success. Find the right balance between the two.

View Failure as a Learning Opportunity

Failure is very real, but it is not a personal characteristic. Looking at failure more positively, consider this: those who fail are those brave enough to take risks, and learn from every one of them.

  • Ask yourself these questions in order to learn and grow from past mistakes: “How did I approach this situation? How prepared was I? What was within my control, and what was not? Of the things within my control, what other actions could I have taken that might have produced a different outcome?”
  • Separate the event that resulted in a failure from your personal identity. Objectively review the situation and its outcome, and be prepared to try a different approach next time. As you complete this exercise, be honest with yourself. Denial is your worst enemy. You are doomed to fail repeatedly only if you choose not to learn from your mistakes.

If you feel as though your professional life is stagnant, it may be time to make a change. Whether this means a transition within your current company or a move to an entirely new career challenge, the Medicalpros Recruiting + Staffing team can help.
