Sept 5, 2011 - Is labor becoming work? Does the work you are doing lately feel more like labor than it used to be? Are you not enjoying what you do as much as you used to enjoy it? Have you lost some of your vigor and vitality? Has what was once your passion been replaced with a sense of drudgery or even boredom? It is okay if what was once your passion has shifted. The key is finding where to shift. It is also possible that you have gotten caught up in doing everything but what you truly love doing. In this case, you need to re-energize and bring your passion back to life and into your everyday work.
Take an MM&I Moment this Labor Day week to write down what seems to be missing compared to before. Write down what is making your work feel less rewarding and just a lot more work. Then ask yourself why you feel this way and be entirely honest with yourself. Next to each listed item, write one thing you could do to either shift or re-energize your work and your passion for your work. Take action on one item a day and before you know it, you will be loving work and bringing it back to life again!
