Why a Less Stressful Job isn’t the Answer

Ep: 146

Are you tired of not having the balance you want in your life?

Are you feeling stuck in a work environment that’s toxic?

Often when we feel this way, our first impulse is to change our environment. We start searching for new jobs and tell ourselves that things will get better. But it doesn’t take long until we recognize the same problems starting to return.

A “change of scenery” or taking a step back in your career is rarely the answer. These are just short-term solutions to bigger problems, and until you address the root cause, they will continue to follow you wherever you go, into whatever job you take.

Today, Blake explains why the changes you seek won’t be found in new jobs or title changes. You’ll hear why continuing to make career compromises is a never-ending cycle that won’t lead to permanent change, and she reveals the reasons why stress follows you into every new role. When exhaustion and dissatisfaction follow you, job after job, it’s a clear sign that you need a fresh perspective.

Real change starts with learning new habits, creating boundaries, and learning the tools that will ultimately help you do your job differently.
