Stuck in a rut.

Posted on

Lately I’ve been feeling like I’m stuck in a rut. Maybe it’s the seasonal change? Maybe I’m depressed and not admitting it to myself? Or maybe I just need to stop whining and actually do something about it.

How does one do that? Get unstuck from a rut, I mean.

One of my main areas of frustration right now is work. I’m not going to get into too many details because I don’t want to get fired, but I’m nearing the end of my rapidly fraying rope. I don’t want to feel this way, because in general I like where I work and I like what I do. So what’s a disgruntled girl to do?

I don’t want to be like Milton from Office Space, bitter that his desk keeps moving and mourning the loss of his red Swingline stapler.

I want to be like Peter Gibbons, after he was hypnotized.

“It’s not that I’m lazy, it’s that I just don’t care.”

This is what I’m aiming for. I am a hard worker, and I’m good at what I do, but I care too much. I take constructive criticism personally and I get so frustrated when projects drag on and on and on because of committee indecision.

No more. I will continue to work hard and do my best and that’s all I can do. If projects drag on for months because 85 different people keep changing their minds, so be it.

I’m learning a great deal about digital marketing right now and I’m getting a pay check, and that’s all that matters to me.

1 rut = paved over.
