Dealing with low motivation at work, by Matthew Coppola

Getting up in the morning becomes a real struggle. Having any interest to get up out of bed and go to work is almost non-existent. And, when you do get to work, your not as productive, motivated or enthusiastic as you once were.

These feelings are generally a good sign that your having to deal with low motivation at work.

So, the question is, what are a couple of ways I can improve my sense of motivation in the workplace? How, can I change my attitude to my current work situation?

I can just imagine that for many, this is a real challenge.

But there are ways to put the oomph back into your level of motivation.

Here are a couple suggestion that may be good for consideration:

  1. Having a goal in place to work towards. 

Maybe there is a new car or item that you would like to purchase. Perhaps, a holiday that you can save up towards. Maybe, your goal is to obtain experience and move on to a new and better position?

Goals are great to have. They are like the end objective, the aim that you can work towards. And, that may mean, a certain number of more months or years until you can reach that goal or plan.

This is just one way that may help improve one’s level of motivation at work.


Are you looking to move on from your job into a new position? Would you like to have your resume professionally revamped by the experts?
