You may be experiencing two corresponding feelings as you work in a virtual environment—fear and boredom.
Fear: You may be uncertain about your job security. This is normal and everyone (and I mean, everyone) experiences fear today because we’ve worked for so long in a social environment; and now that your supervisor is not able to see first-hand how hard you work every day, you may be concerned about proving your worth.
Boredom: Maybe you’re struggling to find work to fill your eight hour day and when you don’t feel challenged, boredom strikes (and possibly fear spikes). Please don’t wait for your supervisor to tell you what to do next; rather, if your workload has slowed way down, now is the time to get creative. We’re all in charge of filling our work plates and should never rely on someone else to tell us what to do.
With a little creative brainstorming you can fill your plate with activities, projects and continue to prove you’re a valuable asset to your team. So please don’t worry and please don’t let boredom settle in. Instead, take action so you don’t get caught being bored. Let’s schedule a career coaching session to discuss how you can boost your productivity, enhance your value, stay engaged, feel more secure, lead new initiatives and prove your worth during these uncertain times and beyond.
