I’ve written this title three times and each attempt prompts Mick Jagger’s dulcet tones of the classic Stones track.

How do you know when you ‘aint got no satisfaction’? Here are 7 tell-tale signs that it’s time to move on…

You’re just not excited about your work. When your alarm goes off in the morning, you’d rather hide under your pillow than face the same droll day.  Your job just isn’t fun, interesting, or challenging anymore.

You feel invisible. Your talents are underutilised and underappreciated.  You seem to be covering everyone else’s work so much so, your colleagues have assumed these extra tasks are now part of your job role.

You and your line manager are on different pages, in different books.  You’ve had difficulty supporting your boss — and it’s not getting better. Most people leave their job because of conflict with their manager.

You’re frustrated with the organisational bureaucracy and find it nearly impossible to accomplish anything important.  There are far too many barriers to getting things done in your organisational culture. 

There are constant reorganisations taking place and a revolving door of managers, support and consultants.  It would be nice to have some stability in your work life for a change.

Your job is too demanding or stressful and the workload is so excessive you have no time for family, friends, or other interests.  You’re tired of doing so much work after work.  All work and no play.

It’s not getting you any closer to your promotion or career goals.  Are you plodding on?

If you can relate to several of these, it’s time to take action! And this is the best time of year to be doing that.

Life is too short to not be doing work you love.

So when you “can’t get no satisfaction hey, hey, hey, that’s what I say……. “
