Running on empty at work just doesn’t cut it. Keeping up just for the paycheck, but your heart is missing when the pen hits the paper, isn’t worth it.
Stop counting the minutes until quitting time; when even in those moments, nothing is really getting done. When you don’t love what you do OR haven’t motivated yourself to be totally into work, it’s really hard to avoid giving the bare minimum. Learning to love what you do isn’t as easy when you’ve already grown to really dislike it.
