Even if you really enjoy your job, it's still possible to battle boredom as you work your way toward the boardroom. You may not be able to make big changes —— or change your job —— but you can make small adjustments to your routine that can make every day seem, well, a little less routine. 即便你真地很喜欢自己的工作，还是可能要在晋升的路上和无聊作斗争。你也许无法做出很大改变——或者换工作——但你可以对日常事务进行小的调整，从而让每天看起来不那么程式化。
1. Switch Your Seat 换位子
Change your outlook at the office by changing your office —— literally. Ask your supervisor to help you find a new desk, office, or cube to call home. Even switching desks with a neighboring coworker can offer a fresh perspective.
If it's not possible to change your location, see if you can change how your desk is oriented. A new perspective can be just as refreshing as a new location.
2. Change Your Commute 改变上班路线
Start and end your day in a different way by making changes to your commute. Consider a new mode of transportation, if it's possible. Take a subway. Ride a bike on sunny days. Carpool with a coworker. Use a new route to get to your job. You needn't change your commute permanently —— just long enough to help you escape the doldrums.
3. Find a New Way to Work 新的工作方式
Shake things up at the office by changing how things get done. 以改变做事方式来对办公室的生活洗牌。
Sick of attending that long-standing Monday morning meeting? Try to rally your boss to change it to the afternoon.
If you find yourself feeling most bored in the afternoons, try to arrange to do your favorite tasks then and tackle less desirable projects in the mornings.
If you usually communicate with coworkers via email and instant messaging, start dealing with people face to face. Increased interaction with coworkers may help improve your mood. 如果你总是通过电子邮件和即时通讯软件与同事交流，那么开始和人们面对面交流。和同事交往度提高可以帮助你改善心情。
4. Get and Set a Goal 定目标
If you're not working toward something, it's no wonder that work has become boring. Identify a goal and set an "achieve by" date for it.
Your goal needn't be lofty as long as you have sufficient enthusiasm for it. Perhaps you want to tackle a new project. Maybe you'd like to pursue a promotion. Or you may even set a goal of finding a new job altogether. Whatever it is, actively moving toward an objective will make work much more interesting.
