Counting down the days till the end of a week is not a good sign.
It usually means that;
a) Work is not captivating enough to keep you interested
b) You have stuff on the weekend that you’re really looking forward to
c) You like to count.
In my case, I think a is my selection. I don’t have enough on this weekend to really look forward to, but you can count b because the biggest think about weekends is that I don’t have to work.
I have a real problem with MOTIVATION. I lack it. I have honestly never had a job where I can keep motivated.
How do people come to work every day and strive to do better and better?
Which magical, mystical jobs are these??
I mean, I have dream jobs. The jobs that I want to do. I even dreamt about such a job last night.
I was working with Dools and Linda at Triple J. I was spinning songs. I was hanging out with bands. I was picking songs to play on the radio. I was MOTIVATED.
in my sleep.
More motivated than I am to solve dozens of annoying IT problems. Every. Single. Day.
How do you keep motivated?
- Setting Goals?
- The fear of not looking bad?
- Monetary incentive?
- Fear of going insane?
- Resignation of a mundane life?
- The knowledge that what you are doing is really making a difference?
I think the only job I’ve ever had where I felt I was making a difference, was where I was making passports for Australians in Washington DC. At least I knew that I was producing something tangible.
Here, all I am doing, is fixing things that have always been there.
Must. Perform. Mindless. Tasks.
Have a nice Friday everyone.
The Drop Bears play tonight at the Civic RSL, and then tomorrow night at Walsh’s Hotel in Queanbeyan. Come on down and bring your dancing shoes. Even if they aren’t Blue Suede.
