If you strongly dislike the work you do each day, you are probably pretty miserable.
"You wake up, you hate your job. You go there, you decide to spend an hour in the bathroom just so you can be on your phone away from your desk — I get it," says Ramit Sethi, founder of the online personal finance and career resource "I Will Teach You to be Rich" and GrowthLab.com, where entrepreneurs go to launch and grow their online businesses.
Being bored and unchallenged by your job won't just make you frustrated, though. It's also going to hurt your career.
"Every day you are at your job that you're not being challenged, you're not being given more responsibilities, you're not building your skills," says Sethi. "Every day you're at that job, your skills are actually deteriorating because there's somebody out there who's being given more responsibility.
"They're getting paid more and they're building amazing relationships."
