No Motivation to Go to Work? Find it Here (Easy Peasy!)

Everyone loves to talk about how they lack motivation on their jobs. Okay, not everyone, but almost everyone.

Sometimes, I think some workers have become so used to complaining  so much that they don’t realize that it’s become the norm. Like, one can even hear their thoughts.

In a previous article, I discussed how to discover if you lack motivation, because I was of the opinion that that was the first step to take. But, I also feel that inspiration has a way of influencing motivation.

That explains why I started out the inspiration category on the blog. I was of the opinion that we all need something or someone to inspire us to seek out the best in life, which of course, would include our jobs!

Does Culture Affect Your Writing or Communication at Work?

Before I relocated, I was the type that would send a casual email, write or communicate in this format:

“Dear Sir/ Ma,

I hope this email finds you well?

I am sending this email because I am….”

And then, of course, I’d end the email with a “Yours sincerely”. Actually, I think I frequently used “Best regards” Haha!

Did you notice that there was no form of abbreviation or nada?! I’d read and re-read my email to be sure that I had made no errors and to ensure that the email depicted me to be a formal person.

Maybe it was the culture, now that I think of it.

Want to feel More Appreciated & Valued at Work? Here is How!

You go to work happy. Do everything within your power to meet the end of your bargain – do your job!

And your boss or employer never deems it fit to acknowledge your hard work and input.

This is not to say that you are carrying out your job because you hope to be rewarded or praised. I think as humans we just want to feel appreciated.

We want someone to notice that we put in some time to make some achievements.

I get it.

You get it!

Finally, no more Phone Distractions at Work!

I’m sure when you saw the blog title, you rolled your eyes because you are most likely reading this post on your phone.

But, please hold on. What I mean is phone distractions at work…during work hours, especially when you are working on a tight schedule but your phone won’t let you be.

I used to think I wasn’t a phone addict.

I was wrong.

Although I don’t think I’m addicted to my phone since I barely have people calling me. I’m sort of addicted to the social media apps in it. I keep refreshing my phone for updates even when it’s unnecessary.

4 Practical Ways to Stay Calm under Work Pressure

Pressure at work is mostly inevitable. Most workplaces are fast paced and this is majorly not your fault but as a result of business needs and urgencies.

You keep asking yourself if you are making a mistake at some point. Sometimes you are not aware of a mistake you made.

And sometimes you find that you are so uneasy. It’s real. It does happen. You are human after all. You are left to wonder how you got to make a huge error in the first place.

Personality Clash with your Dream Job? Here is the Solution!

If personality clash can be linked to relationships, why then can’t we link it to our jobs and how we feel about implementing it?

We have every reason to believe that we are in a relationship with our jobs/ career. We spend a large amount of time each day at our various workplaces which average at least 7 hours per day.

Personality clash at work is real. If you are an indoor person and your job requires you to be outdoor, that’ll be a big deal for you and possibly a deal breaker. This goes vice versa.

4 Ways to Deal with a Coworker who is out to Get you

Have you ever come to that point in time when you feel like a coworker is out to revenge? For whatever reason.

I don’t know about you, but there have certainly been times like that for me. As though we are out for a competition of whatever sort. If you know me too well, you’d know that I hate unhealthy competition. The sky is out there and can contain every one of us. So why bother?!

Besides, unhealthy competition is so much work! Jeez, you’d have to spend hours plotting. Time thinking of how to strike. I’d rather go to bed and have some beauty sleep.
