Why for some it can be a challenge to get up to go to work, by Matthew Coppola

For many, they look forward to going to work, and so getting up in the morning can be a joy, because of the job that they have to go to. This is great, and the way it should be. But, for some, they find it a challenge to look forward to going to work. But, why is this the case?

Reasons are going to differ from person to person. However, for many, some of the reasons for a lack of motivation to get up to go to work can include:

  • The job may not interest us as it once did.
  • We feel it no longer provides any challenge or excitement.
  • We feel that the job is not going anywhere for us.
  • We want a change of scenery.
  • We want a better, more fulfilling role. A step up.
  • Need for a better income.
  • Job is too difficult or too easy.
  • Comparing ourselves to others.

Life after the defence – Dealing with unstructured days and flexibility in the workplace, by Matthew Coppola

A career in the military can be very structured and regimental. Not surprising then that it can be rather challenging for a former defence personnel member in handling the unstructured days and flexibility that present themselves at a workplace in a civilian setting. Not knowing what each day will bring and what will need to be done, and not having a proper structure for each day can be very hard to adjust to.

A good way of handling this challenge is to have a set structure that allows for the normal set day to day activities that won’t change, such as working Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm, as well as time set aside for any social activities and other extra-curricular activities or family time. In structuring your job, it’s a good idea to take note within the working week of all the standard and typical duties that you will be performing, and rather than setting those activities for particular times (ie. 3 – 5pm ‘Write up reports’) allow for a longer period of time, say the whole day and then list those activities/tasks which you can then cross off once completed.

This isn’t the most perfect way of structuring and unstructured day, but at least it helps to provide you with a measure of structure and orderliness to your day.
