Question from Brian
How do you battle being unmotivated? You’re boss doesn’t acknowledge your work, doesn’t acknowledge your time with the company. You feel unmotivated, unappreciated, and undervalued. You think its a personal issue that you need to fix, but you come to find out that your co-worker feels the same way, and they’ve been with the company for 20 years! How do you get out of that, or is it just a personal issue we need to get over, or do you just start looking for a new job? At what point is enough enough. I love my job, what i’m doing and the company I’m doing it for, but I feel that my uppers are a huge road block to my road to happiness. What would you do?
