5. Skills you've learned. If you've been at your job for any length of time, you've learned a few things that you didn't know when you got there. When you open your mind you would be amazed at all things you can still learn. You can always learn more about business, customer service, relationships, technology, and a slew of other things if you keep your eyes open to opportunities.
6. Listen to what your friends are saying. There are a lot worse places to work than where you currently are. People always think grass is greener on other side of fence, but they forget it still needs to be mowed (and weeded and watered). There are some people out there would envy where you work and what you do.
I firmly believe in loving what you do. Life is too short to waste time working at a job you dislike. But if you find yourself in a position where timing isn't right for you move, whatever reason, use these ideas to help you appreciate (and even love?) job you're in.
