What’s up with that colleague always excited about what he’s doing? Hmm! It’s the other way around for you: you hate your job. You can’t help but envy him for his passion and for getting things right. He seems to be the right man for the right job…
We know that you secretly want to rekindle that passion from the beginning, to feel the energy of new projects and to get out of the routine of those to do. Work can easily become a boring practice, and routine is the enemy of the most tireless professionals. But… with little will you can neutralize the harmful effects of apathy and regain your past enthusiasm. Practice is the mother of learning, so we recommend intensive exercises every day.
- BE PROUD OF YOURSELF: ACKNOWLEDGE SUCCESS
Achieving professional goals, big or small, is worth celebrating. Whenever you complete a complex activity, which at first may seem impossible to complete, don’t forget to tell yourself that you were good. This will increase your confidence and, when another seemingly unsolvable task arrives, you will be even more motivated to be productive.
- REMEMBER THAT WHAT YOU DO IS YOUR CONTRIBUTION TO A GOOD AND GREATER
Whatever activity you carry out, directly or indirectly, you help your peers and the community. And the joy that your involvement gives you is commensurate with the support you can provide. To run a marathon for the children in your community, to donate a meal voucher for the grandparents of your community, to dedicate your time to take care of a community dog, to help the development of your region by hiring as many candidates as possible, to contribute to the education of members of your community…. There are as many reasons for joy for every day of work and involvement.
- COMMUNICATION WITH OTHER COLLEAGUES IS KEY
The moments spent with your colleagues are a source of inspiration and can help you recharge your batteries. A coffee break, a spontaneous brainstorming, an ad-hoc discussion about weekend movies… These kinds of interactions can help you strengthen relationships with colleagues and dare to ask for and support them with more openness.
But beware of toxic situations. If those who are always positive will give you the dose of energy you need to move mountains, toxic employees will constantly drip your grievances that will cut off any momentum.
- MEASURE PERFORMANCE
What is more satisfying than checking another task for success? Maybe a whole list of tasks completed successfully. Every time you progress, your motivation increases. In addition, an empty space next to an unfinished task will push you to work harder to complete.
In addition, if at the end you celebrate as I said above, you will definitely be on the right track to regaining motivation at work.
