You’re not lazy, you just hate your job

Ever find yourself at work, knowing there’s work to be done, but not feeling motivated to do it AT ALL.

You just sit and find anything to do but the work you know needs done.

We play with our phones, chat to our colleagues or head to the coffee point.

Anything BUT doing the work!

Similarly, have you ever worked on a personal project, or hobby, and been at it from dusk till dawn? So engrossed in the work that you’ve not even stopped for something to eat?

If you have, it proves you’re NOT A LAZY PERSON, it’s just that the work doesn’t MOTIVATE or INSPIRE you.

I don’t look at feeling unmotivated as a negative. Quite the opposite. I believe it’s a great indicator that the work isn’t for you, and it’s probably worth considering a different career.

We have ONE LIFE, and it doesn’t make sense to do work that feels like a CHORE!

I’ve seen myself watching the clock all day, waiting for 5 pm. Similarly, checking my calendar all week, waiting for Friday to roll around.

Have I found work that PULLS me out of bed every morning? No. I’m working on it.

That’s the key!
