When Motivation Slides

There may be times when your job is… well, let’s just say less than fun. Repetitive tasks, stretched resources, or dealing with customers or coworkers who are rarely satisfied can lead to occasions where work feels like… just a job. Unfortunately, when we feel a lack of motivation, customers can sense it, which can lead to things worsening. While there’s no magic solution – especially if you don’t control overall corporate strategy – I do have one suggestion for getting out of a rut. If you’re in management, spend the first 90 minutes of your day focused on projects that will address systemic challenges in your department. If you work frontline, invest your first 15 minutes studying tips to improve your job skills; especially your customer communication skills. Starting your day fresh by focusing on something you can control – that moves you in a positive direction – is one of the easiest, most powerful ways to help put the spring back in your step.
