“I’m not suitable for my current job …”
“It’s a waste of time to do something that isn’t suitable for you.”
So, it’s painful to do what isn’t suitable for you, and I can understand the opinion that doing what is suitable for you is much more productive.
I’m currently working in an IT company.
After graduating from university, I got a job at an IT company and have been working in the IT industry for about 6 years.
However, I was originally a super-humanities type person, and the IT industry in science was a field I was not very good at.
Why did you enter an industry that wasn’t suitable for you?
At that time, I didn’t think that the IT industry was not suitable for me at all, and rather I was thinking positively that it would be fun to make apps.
But after that, I gradually realized that I wasn’t suitable for the IT industry at all…
I’ve done things that were not suitable for me for six years, but now I’m glad I’ve done things that were not suitable for me as a result.
As a result of continuing unsuitable work for 6 years while wanting to quit, I think that my value has increased.
However, it was certainly tough, and I think people who say “You shouldn’t do things that aren’t suitable for you” are the majority.
I think so basically, but I don’t think so always.
Then, I would like to explain in detail below why I think so, based on my own experience.
If you continue to do things that are not suitable, you will be able to do it
Persistence pays off.
If you continue to do things that are not suitable for you, you will be able to do it before you know it.
That was exactly what I was.
I was an art person, and have lived by using only sense. 100% sense.
Until then, I was a person who didn’t think by using my head at all, handled everything by using my senses.
When I started working at an IT company, I had to think about things logically, but of course, I couldn’t do that at all, and I had a lot of trouble.
“I can’t understand how many times I think”
“Even if I try to tell the other person things, my head is completely messed up and then I can’t talk.”
“I didn’t know if I could understand or not even after receiving the explanation, and I couldn’t understand after all.”
Like above, I continued to show a ridiculous condition.
But even so, as I continued to work, I suddenly came to be able to do it well.
It was about five years since I started working in the IT industry.
There is a thing called “a learning curve”, and even if I start learning, my academic ability doesn’t improve as I expected for a while, but at one point, my academic ability suddenly rises at a stretch.
I did not know that.
It doesn’t mean that your academic ability will improve at a constant pace.
Before I knew it, my understanding was deeper than before, I came to be able to convey what I meant to the other person in an easy-to-understand manner, and I came to be able to think more logically than before.
Even a 100% pure sensory human like me has acquired logical thinking ability before I knew it.
And now I have some confidence in thinking with my head.
It took time for six years to come to work well.
In my case, it took 6 years, but I think that ordinary people will be able to do that faster than me.
From the experience that I came to be able to work well, so I think that everyone will come to be able to do something that is not suitable for them by continuing.
You can spread the range of your skills
I have the experience of being able to do this even if I was such a dropout, so I think that even if it is not suitable for you, you will be able to do it sooner or later.
However, if you come to be able to do what you are not good at, you will eventually broaden your skills.
The more you can do, the more options you have in your life, and it may become your weapon in unexpected places in your life.
Certainly, players who can defend anywhere in baseball are useful
People who can do almost anything even if one ability is not outstanding are also useful from the surroundings.
Gain confidence that there is nothing you can’t do
If you come to be able to do things that aren’t suitable for you, you’ll build confidence in yourself.
I was really bad at thinking logically, so I never dreamed that I would be able to do it, and now I am confident that “I can do anything!“, “There is nothing I can’t do!“.
The more you are not good at what you are not good at, when you overcame that, your confidence will be more raised.
And that confidence will help you in overcoming various barriers in your life.
Become better at your area of expertise
If you can do something that isn’t suitable for you, I think you can make use of it for what you are good at.
For example, I make music and write blogs, but now that I got acquired logical thinking ability, when I can’t make music or blogs well, I find improvement points by using logical thinking and came to be able to improve it.
As a result, the accuracy of the field of my specialty is further improved.
Also, in the case of baseball, for example, even a person who is good at batting and not good at defense will gradually improve his defense and when he did nice play in defense, he will also produce a good rhythm in batting next time.
If you come to be able to do what you couldn’t do well, I think you will be also able to do more what you are good at.
Certainly, after playing well in defense, the next time I play a batter, my concentration will be sharpened.
If I have what I can do more than one, each one can influence each other and produce good results!
If you come to be able to do things that are not suitable for you, there is a high possibility that you will be able to make more use of your areas of expertise, I think you can become a “high marketability person” unlike those who have only done what they are good at.
However, if your heart is about to break, you should quit without trying hard
I’ve written a lot so far, but if you’re feeling so terrible that your heart is about to break, I think you should stop doing what you’re doing and do something else.
Because I suffered from depression in the past, and I have experienced tremendous pain, so I think you don’t need to do your best until your heart would break.
It would be nice if you have the motivation to “let’s do my best even if It’s not suitable for me!!“, But if you have the motivation to “let’s do my best even if It’s not suitable for me…………“, I think it’s better to stop immediately.
If you still want to do your best, I will not stop, but there are various jobs in the world, so I’m sure you can find another job that suits you.
I wonder if we need to do our best until break my body and mind …
As a result, I think it’s worst to be in a state where you can’t do anything anymore.
I think you should do your best as long as you don’t overdo it.
So far, I have expressed my opinion which is different from the majority.
Having said that, I think that we should basically do what we are good at.
If you can do what you are good at, your income will be better, and above all, you will enjoy your work.
However, in my experience, it is not always possible to say, “You shouldn’t do what is suitable for you.”
merit was so big when I came to be able to do things that were not suitable for me.
I feel that what I was not good at in the past is now a big weapon for me.
I think it’s not wasteful to do something that isn’t suitable.
So my opinion is, “If you can, you should do what you are good at, but you can find something by doing something that is not suitable for you.”
That’s right, so if you can’t get an answer by thinking about whether you are suitable for yourself or not, you should take the plunge!
Well, even if it wasn’t suitable for it, it wouldn’t be wasted.
Rather it seems to be a good experience
Besides, human beings can grow.
I think everyone will gradually become a person who is close to the environment in which it is placed.
You should have a lot of abilities
If you’re scared before you dive into the industry, why not take the plunge?
You may acquire abilities that you didn’t expect.
