Is my work fulfilling enough?
If you often worried that you spend too much time on your work, it may not just because you suddenly have lots of work to do. Instead of that, people will think that why they need to work so hard where it doesn’t have any major changes to their work lives. If you think in this way, then you may spend more time in your work where you lack of fulfillment and passion and makes you less productive in your work. Therefore, try asking yourself a question:” Does the job really bring achievement”? Maybe it used to be or does your interest change? Be honest to yourself and decide whether change another job that match your desire or stay here for long term.
Why am I staying so connected?
Well just admit it that you still checking your Instagram, Facebook, WhatsApp’s and other social media even though your wok emails are more than your social media message. Since technology is so advance nowadays, it may common for you as well to reply your colleague message about work after your working hour. It actually just fine but if you keep focusing on your work even after working hour, your family will feel ignored and your relationship with them will get affected. Therefore, think about it whether it is possible to ignored our work after working hour. If it is possible, try to reserve the time for your family and have nice conversation with them. Remember that you work because of your family which means that without family, there will be no meaning for you to work.
Is my expectation too high across the board?
We all know that through balance time for our work and family will make us successful in both sphere. However, it is not easy where you need to commit certain goal and while sacrificing certain area to achieve them. In other word, you may need to put more effort in other field and ignored others to achieve it.
