Questions to Evaluate Your Overall Work Mindset

17 June 2022

How has work been lately?

To do our best at work, we must be evaluating our performance from time to time. It’s not enough to be complacent just because we are already hired or we’ve been working for the same company for quite a while already. For us to be happy at work, we should also be concerned with the company that we are working for. It gives us a clearer purpose on why we do what we do. It also gives us direction on what we will be doing next, whether it’s for the same company or somewhere else that will allow us to grow and spread our wings.

So have you checked on yourself and how you’ve been feeling about work lately? Here are some questions that you may ask yourself in an honest evaluation of whether or not you are performing your best at work and if it still serves you right, given your goals in your career and life.

Do you feel excited to start work every day?
If not, do you still find a reason to motivate you to finish your tasks?
Are you able to complete your assignments on time?
Are you able to update your superiors or bosses with the status of your work tasks?
What fulfillment do you get from work?
What are you able to do outside of work that your job allows you to do? For example, are you able to pay for your hobbies because of the stability and flexibility that your work provides?
What is expected of you from work? Are you able to fulfill these duties?
Are you becoming a nuisance to your colleagues, meaning have they been approaching you about your work ethic?
Are you always praised for a job well done? What does it feel when you make your colleagues happy about your work performance?
How do you see yourself growing in your job for the next 12 months?
Does your current job allow you to enhance your skills and improve for your long-term goal?
Are you satisfied with your work performance?
What areas can you improve on?
How are you improving your work ethic every day?
Does your work spark joy in you?
What is your reason for staying?

If you notice repetitive answers in your questions, then determine what the tone of your responses is. Are they mostly positive or negative? Regardless, you have to make a firm decision on what your next move will be. This will only be beneficial to you and the company that you are working for.
