Work Sphere Exercise No. 3: Everything Would Be Great, But this exercise is designed for people who are convinced they would truly enjoy their job except for a “but” (for example, “I would love what I do, but my boss is always picking on me.”) In other words, one or more factors diminish their enjoyment or limit their potential.

Try to strike a compromise. Find a middle ground between what you want to make work better and what someone else wants and see if that improves your quality of work life.

Ask for a transfer somewhere else in the company. Thus you’re removed from the but.
