How to Keep Going When You're Demotivated at Work

How to Keep Going When You're Demotivated at Work | Career and Leadership | Scoop.it

Much like most people, I've faced multiple instances where there was nothing keeping me at a job, but bills and responsibilities meant quitting wasn't an option either. In such cases, it's difficult to show up, let alone do your work to your best ability. But a few strategies have helped.

 

Stop Blaming Yourself, But Take Responsibility

 

Motivation is intrinsic. While external factors affect it, your reaction to those factors is what ultimately leaves you demotivated. But there's a difference between taking responsibility for this and blaming yourself for this—and far too often, we do the latter.

Sometimes, you get to a point at work where your motivation is completely depleted. But circumstances dictate that you can't quit. So how do you keep going? There's always a way.

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, September 10, 2014 12:14 AM

Life has so much more to offer beyond the expected pitfalls that one will always come accross in life! In many cases we think we are the mistakes that we make. In reality we are more than the mistakes we make. Motivation depends on our attitude towards life and the challenges it poses before us.

Great Article!

 

(From the article): Learn, and never stop learning


The best managers in the world understand their limitations. And they work hard to overcome them. These folks understand that education is a lifelong process. If you hope to be a leader one day, take the time right now to learn as much as you can about everything you possibly can.

 

Of course, it’s probably wise to learn about management, your industry, and other relevant tools and technologies instead of trying to become the office trivia wizard.

Why Your Boss in The Corner Office Is Healthier Than You

Why Your Boss in The Corner Office Is Healthier Than You | Career and Leadership | Scoop.it

Employees who are lucky enough to snag an office with a view not only have a sunnier disposition, thanks to the rays of sunshine splashed across their desk. It turns out they also have better overall health than their coworkers whose desks are stuffed in drab corners lacking natural light.

 

A recent study published in the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine shows workers with office windows get 46 more minutes of sleep per night, tend to exercise more, and have lower blood pressure than those without a view.

5 Ways to be a Leader, Not a Manager

5 Ways to be a Leader, Not a Manager | Career and Leadership | Scoop.it

Have you ever wondered about the difference between a manager and a leader?

donhornsby's curator insight, September 5, 2014 10:47 AM

(From the article): “It’s very easy to praise somebody. It’s easy to give somebody a raise or a good review.” It can be much harder, however, to have the tough conversations.

While admitting that this might sound like a harsh thing to say, Jennifer pointed out that not everyone does an outstanding job all the time. “You’ve got to tell them, and then you’ve got to move on,” she acknowledged.

The Takeaway

Her parting words for the group were filled with encouragement to strive to be a leader and not just a manager. “Learn to inspire and motivate as opposed to dictate,” she said in closing. “At the end of the day, good leaders often don’t do the work but they make you feel like they did.”

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, September 5, 2014 12:36 PM

Having experienced the overwhelming pace in School, I think that we lose our way and it becomes easier to manage than lead.

 

I just spent time listening to person who struggles with processing information. It is hard work to listen carefully, not for answers, but just to listen. This makes leading hard work. I could have managed the situation by finishing sentences, which I occasionally did. Listening to children, employees, co-workers, etc. is hard work when we just listen.
