Either Wait, Move or Switch New Job ?

Kepada semua kengkawan yg ingin menukar kerje sile buat beberapa penelitan seperti dibawah.. maklumat ini di ceduk dari Mr. Googles.. :)) Selamat Membaca.. !!


EVERYTHING appears to be going wrong at work. Job dissatisfaction. Is that a familiar situation to you? Anyone considering changing job has many concerns and fears.   
But in most cases the consequences of switching are less dramatic than expected. What's certain is that if you do nothing about your situation, you will remain unhappy.
Getting another job, setting up a business or going back to college all sound like attractive options. But most people delay the decision so long that they never make the change. The cause of that procrastination is fear of making a mistake.

When's the right time to make the switch? "When you're fighting to enjoy your time at work and at home. That's the warning signal,'' says career coach Martin Wehrle. "It's always possible to try and extract more satisfaction from your job.''

But in many cases the solution is to change job completely. "If you think nothing is going to alter at work, then it's more than just a phase you're going through,'' says career adviser Carolin Luedemann.
That's when you have to make the decision to leave.
What do I really want? Wehrle says that question needs to be more precise: "What would you do if you had all the money you needed and still wanted go out working?'' By rephrasing the question most people direct their thoughts away from the material aspect to thinking about what they really want.

Luedemann says it's important to get a detailed and vivid idea of what you would like your future to look like. How will I travel to work, by bike or by car? What does the reception area at work look like? Do I have an office. Do I have a boss? "Most of my clients then say: 'I don't know.' But there's no such thing as 'I don't know','' says Luedemann.
It's a matter of your vision not being precise enough.

What's keeping me back from achieving that? "We tend to use rules of thumb to make everyday decisions,'' says the psychologist Professor Lioba Werth from the University of Chemnitz in Germany.

"But when it comes to meaningful, personal changes our decision-making habit often fails,'' says Werth. "The fear of taking a wrong step leads to not taking any step at all,'' confirms Luedemann.

"If I take the first or second step and I notice things are not working out, I still have time to alter direction.''
How do I take the first step? Wehrle's advice: "The best thing to do is to test how strong the ice is by placing one foot on it. Then take three more steps and keep the way back open.'' After all, most people are dictated by material aspects like children, the rent or the mortgage. "Hardly anyone is completely free.''

It's a good idea to set out a timetable to get over the first hurdles. "Studies have shown that we need just the amount of time that we allot ourselves,'' says Luedemann. Putting yourself under positive pressure is also helpful. "But it must be realistic pressure.''

When is the way back closed off? Wehrle compares that moment to launching yourself off a ski jump. "You become aware that you must jump or otherwise you will fall off. However, many people jump too soon. They then give up and have nothing left, or they jump off too late.'' But if you feel confident you will embrace that moment when it comes.
