Boredom on the Job

By July 6, 2009

Follow me on:

An About.com reader asks for advice on how to handle boredom on the job.

"I have a good job with less paperwork and lots of flexibility. The problem is I am bored. Boredom leads me to be less productive and more disorganized. I guess a more accurate description of my problem is ‘lack of engagement’ on the job. Once I have gotten a reasonable understanding of my duties, I find I am not engaged enough to try to improve my skills or become more efficient. It's like I'm only stimulated to learn new things and once that has happened I want to move on.”
