4 Simple Ways to Make Boring Work Become Interesting
Do you often find yourself locked in a staring competition with the clock, willing it to hit 5 PM so you can finally leave the office? You’ve done every task on your to-do list for today, tomorrow, and even the day after, but somehow there’s still time to spare.
Sitting at your desk, wishing you could be anywhere other than here, doing anything else…?
You’re not alone.
Even when you have a job you love, it’s easy to get bored. And if your job isn’t something you’re passionate about, it’s even easier for boringness to creep in.
Did you know it’s actually possible to make any job more interesting?
Your work can be much more interesting if you learn these little tricks.
Ready to learn how to stop feeling so bored at work?
We’ve listed some simple suggestions below – you can start implementing these right now.
Let’s do this.
1. Make routine tasks more interesting by adding something new
Sometimes one new element is all it takes to turn routine tasks from dull to interesting.
Maybe there’s a long drive you have to make every single week. You get so bored, going the same old route to make the same old deliveries.
Why not make it a routine to create a playlist of new music each Sunday, to listen to on your boring drive during the week?
Just like that, something you dread can be turned into the highlight of your day.
For other routine tasks, you could try setting a timer and trying to beat your record, moving to a new location to complete the task, or trying out a new technique for getting the work done – you might even improve your productivity, too.
2. Combine repetitive tasks to get them out of the way
Certain tasks are difficult to make interesting, no matter how hard you try.
For example, if you hate listening to meeting recordings, and dislike tidying your desk, do them both at the same time. You’ll halve the time you spend bored out of your mind, and can move onto more interesting tasks as soon as you’re done.
3. Break large tasks into small pieces and plan breaks between them
Feeling overwhelmed can lead you to procrastinate and get bored. Try breaking up large tasks into lots of small pieces to keep things manageable and fun.
Try breaking up a 10,000 word report into 1000-word sections. Reward yourself at the end of each section, and you’ll get 10 mini mood boosts, instead of just one at the end.
You can also plan short breaks between each section, which will help to prevent boredom and keep you focused.
4. Give yourself regular rewards, it can be anything that makes you feel good
Make sure you reward yourself for achievements, even if they feel small.
Rewards could include:
Eating your favorite snack.
Taking a walk in a natural area.
Spending a few minutes on a fun online game.
Buying yourself a small treat.
Visiting a new place.
Spending time on a favorite hobby.
Your brain will come to associate work with fun rewards, and you’ll soon feel less bored and more motivated.
Boringness doesn’t have to be a fact of life.
Make your working life feel a thousand times more fun by
following the simple tips above.
