  Are you familiar with kudzu-- a prolific vine that wraps itself around other vegetation, strangling the life out of it? Does this sound like what your job is doing to you? Rather than helping you to blossom, is your job running you over like a lawnmower? Stop the madness! You spend too much time at work to be miserable. You can cut through " career kudzu" by putting the following advice into action.

  Be Honest With Your Boss Your boss may be talented and inspirational, but probably not a mind-reader. If you are frustrated at work, speak up. Your boss has a right to know if you are feeling undervalued, burned out, or desperately in need of a more flexible schedule. There are, of course, ways to conduct this talk so that you don't sound whiny or hopelessly confused. You may be more appreciated and have more options than you thought. A good boss can give you strategies to pull your attitude out of a funk. Give it a chance, and be honest in your discussion.

  Let the Job Bring Out Your Best If you have a job that matches your skills poorly, you'll end up hating it. For example, sales jobs are not for everyone. An introverted, quiet person is likely to feel uncomfortable chasing down some sales quota. Your job should fit like a glove, not force you to be something you are not. Ill-fitting jobs cause stress, according to psychologist Bill Crawford, stress is a signal that something needs to change." Suffering is when we don't make the change," Crawford explains, " Often we don't listen to the signal of stress in our lives until it becomes a severe problem." If your job is not fulfilling, get creative. Drastic changes are not always necessary. Arlene S. Hirsch, author of Love Your Work and Success Will Follow, tells the story of a banker with strong financial analysis skills who was experiencing great job dissatisfaction. He recaptured his love for music by accepting a job as CFO for a symphony orchestra. Smart move!

  Acknowledge Your Anger If you really hate your job, it's likely that you are fired up about something. Pinpointing the source of your anger is a crucial first step. According to Dr. Hendrie Weisinger, there are 5 main anger-provoking work situations: 1. Being left out. Not being accepted by your peers severely limits how effective you can be on the job, and shakes your fundamental need for acceptance. 2. Critical bosses. Nitpicking bosses are infuriating. 3. Not getting promoted. You try your best and it's never acknowledged. 4. Being maligned by co-workers. Being victimized by false rumors is a consistent anger arouser. 5. Incompetent bosses. An incompetent boss can stifle your enthusiasm and torpedo your chances for job satisfaction.

  Get Rid of Grudges When people work together, hurt feelings, misunderstandings, and cross words are inevitable. If you are mistreated at work, you'll be tempted to get even. Be careful: Making enemies can lead straight to job misery. Even if you have been treated unfairly, you can take the high road. While practicing forgiveness may be the last thing you want to do, it is often the wisest move. Offenders may not deserve your kindness, but you do. By forgiving abusive jerks, you are actually giving yourself a break. Sure, you can quit your job in a huff and seek greener pastures elsewhere. Find a place where people treat you with the love and respect that you deserve. Right? Wrong! You'll find "challenging" co-workers wherever you go. They just look different and have different names. You'd be better off finding ways to live in peace with people with various value systems.

  Above all else, try to keep your perspective.We all hate our jobs occasionally? The trick is to keep those times few and far between. Putting these tips into practice will help you gain greater satisfaction at work. And when you consider that happy employees are more likely to get ahead, isn't that a goal worth smiling about?

 你熟悉野葛吗?这是一种长得很快的藤蔓,它会盘缠在别的植物上,将其缠绕至死。这听起来像不像你的工作对你的所为?你的工作非但不帮助你开花结果,反而像一台剪草机朝你压过来。快别犯傻!你在工作上花了太多时间,苦不堪言。要想摆脱"职业野葛"的缠绕,可将以下忠告付诸行动。

  与你的上司开诚布公你的上司也许才能出众,也许善于调动员工的积极性,但也许未必会解读员工的心思。如果你感觉在工作中诸事不顺,说出来。你的上司有权知道是否你感觉你的才能被低估了,或是忙得焦头烂额,或迫切需要一个更为灵活的工作时间安排。当然你应努力设法让这种谈话听上去不那么牢骚满腹,漫无头绪。说出心里话后,你或许比你原来想像的更受重用,你也有了更多的选择。一个好的上司会教你如何克服抑郁,重新振作起来。尝试一下,和你的上司真诚坦率地交谈。

  让工作表现出你的最佳如果你用非所学,你早晚会厌恶这份工作的。比如说,并非每个人都适合搞推销。一个内向的、少言寡语的人恐怕会对必须努力完成销售额感到十分为难。你的工作应该像一双特别合脚的鞋,不要强迫自己成为另一个人。不合适的工作会导致压抑感,心理学家比尔·克劳福德指出,压抑感是一个信号,告诉你需要做出改变。"当我们不作这种变化的时候我们就会感到痛苦,"克劳福德解释说,"压抑感是生活向我们发出的信号,我们却常常充耳不闻,让它逐渐发展成一个严重的问题。"如果你的工作不能使你有成就感,你就要在工作中努力创新。重大的变化并非总是必要。《热爱你的工作是成功的关键》一书的作者阿林·赫希,在他书中讲述了一位具备很强的财务分析技能的银行家曾对自己工作颇为不满。后来他接受了出任一个交响乐团的首席财务执行官的职务而重拾对音乐的热爱。这是多么聪明的决策!

  承认自己的恼怒如果你十分厌恶你的工作,很可能是你被什么激怒了。找出你恼怒的根源是关键的第一步。亨德里·韦辛格博士指出,工作中有5种主要的使人感到愤怒的情形:1.受冷落。不被同事接受会严重限制你在工作上的有效发挥,并动摇你对被人接受的基本需求。2.苛刻的老板。吹毛求疵的老板让人恼火。3.得不到提升。你已尽心尽力却从不能得到认可。4.遭到同事的诽谤。成为错误谣言的牺牲品很容易令人激怒。5.无能的老板。一个不称职的老板会窒息你的热情并毁灭你对工作感到满意的可能性。

  捐弃嫌隙当人们在一起工作时,出现伤感情、误解和口角是难免的。如果你在工作中受到不公平的对待,你会有一种报复的冲动。但要小心:树敌会直接导致工作中的苦恼。即使人家对你不公,你也可以采取高姿态。宽恕可能是你最不情愿采取的,但却常常是最明智的行动。冒犯你的人也许配不上你的善良,但你配。在宽恕那些恶言谩骂的古怪之人的同时,你实际是在善待自己。当然,你可以一怒之下辞职不干,去别处寻找更绿的牧场。找一个人们以你应得的爱和尊敬待你的地方。对不对?错了!不管你走到哪里,你都会发现"难缠"的同事。他们只是长相不同,姓名不同罢了。你的上策是找出办法与有各式各样价值观的人和平相处。

  再说什么,我们也不应该忘记一点,那就是要把握自己。我们都会偶尔憎恨我们的工作,是不是?关键是让憎恨心情的出现次数尽量减少,让两次出现之间的时间尽量延长。将上述技巧付诸实践会帮助你从工作中得到更大的满足。当你想到快乐的雇员更可能成就多多,你不认为那是值得你露出微笑的目标吗?
