Is Your Work Environment Miserable? You Need to Read This

3. Work to make life better.

You may be the one positive voice that encourages others on your team.

Chances are others are miserable too. Some people have better game faces.

Even if that’s your only purpose in being there, that’s a worthy cause.

4. Strengthen your patience muscle.

Sometimes the staying power takes more strength than leaving. It builds character. It builds tenacity.

You may be the senior leader someday and find yourself miserable again. Leading at the top level brings that sometimes.

The captain of a sinking ship isn’t supposed to jump ship. (We just have to watch recent news to know that.)

5. Pray and watch.

Pray for discernment. For change. For delivery. For relief. For small moments of encouragement.

And watch. For doors to open or things to change. God is doing something—working a plan—even when you can’t see His hand.

Are you miserable?

I’m not suggesting you stay forever. That doesn’t seem wise to me. I’m also not suggesting you quit—at least not immediately.

I am strongly suggesting you not waste the opportunities this time is presenting.
