Sense the right time for career growth
Sometimes a job environment or a job location or a financial fulfillment will become a reason for people to continue in a particular job title for a very long time. This is a very dangerous phenomenon and this might become an important reason for job insecurity.
Dwelling in a particular job domain for quite long might lead to repeating the same processes over and over again. Over a period of time the individual loses interest making the mind stagnant. Ultimately the fervor is lost and the employee shows no signs of improvement.
Embracing the Comfort zone
Repeating the monotonous processes over and over in the same job title makes one inattentive. The mind is tuned to the processes and reaches a comfort zone. The comfort zone is that in which you will be able to dwell without much efforts and still finish the job. This comfort zone brings laziness to the minds. You will become reluctant to the very thought that you have to move to a new place, meet new people, learn new things and fulfill various other activities. It is very important to sense the right time to move out and grow before you get into the comfort zone.
Loss of enthusiasm
Moreover repeating the same set of processes over and over will lead to boredom. The interest and enthusiasm to learn new things in a new environment will eventually fade away. In due course, your mind will develop a kind of fear to move out from the familiar environment and that is when you get stuck up without any kind of career growth.
Explore the opportunities
Even if the idea is to stick on to the same company, you must be able to sense the growth opportunities within the company. If the growth opportunities within the company are limited, the smart choice would be to spot opportunities outside and move to a better job title. Dwelling in the same job title for a long time might take you off the zeal and zest. This might pass negative signals to the top management.
Sense the market trends and technology advancements
The technology is advancing at its own pace. The market is trending according to the advancements in the industry. These advancements completely change the process or switch over to a better alternative. In both the cases, you may be in a situation to adopt other skills or soft skills to perform the same process more efficiently. You must be alert and sensitive to the continuous changes and upgrade yourself to sustain in the workplace failing which you may be replaced by the apt substitute with absolutely no leverage to your years of expertise.
