HBR, How to Battle Job Boredom

It's easy to blame your company, your boss, or your colleagues when you feel bored with your job. But it's up to you to turn things around. Here are three ways to stop the boredom:
Turn off autopilot. Think about new ways of doing work and try new approaches to what may seem like old problems.
See change as possible. When you first started, you likely saw things that needed to change. After a few years, and perhaps a few setbacks, you started to see change as too difficult. Remind yourself that change is possible, even if it's slow, and vow to find ways to make the impossible possible.
Renew your leadership agenda. Think about what you wanted to accomplish during your first 90 days on the job, before you got bored. Renew your energy and commitment to make change happen.
Today's Management Tip was adapted from "Maybe You're the Reason Your Job Is Boring" by Susan Cramm.
