The feeling that you are powerless against the forward march of time can make you fall into a deep rut. Everyone experiences it at least once in their life. You feel like you aren’t getting enough done or what you are doing has no meaning or value; you feel like the same day is just repeating over and over again.

Today we will discuss actionable steps you can take to get out of your routine and get excited about work again.
