A twisted tale of a Languished Tester
“Don’t let yesterday take up too much of today.” — Will Rogers
As testers, we might feel so demotivated. We might not invest time in learning new skills. By this time, our tasks seem boring? The application which you are testing is no more interesting? Not getting the expected promotion or hike? Are you feeling so “blah?. Some days you might even hate testing (or the work you do). You might feel like quitting a boring job.
Does this resonate with you? Officially that’s termed “Languishing”. It is not a mental health condition. It’s just a temporary state of your mind. We are all victims here. This pandemic is having a great connection with the state of languishing. Creating awareness around this topic will help to reduce its effects.
In this talk, let’s deep dive into some philosophies which will help us to identify our inner selves along with a few simple strategies that worked for me. Also, let’s take an oath to do regular health checks (oh, not medical check-ups). Monitor your mental health. See if the progress in the testing space is good enough.
After all, every Tester deserves the best!
