Lazy, or looking for meaning?

“Meaninglessness is the biggest drain on resilience and recovery. If you feel what you are doing is pointless, you will become disillusioned.”
Dr Merete Wedell-Wedellsborg, Business Psychologist and Executive Advisor

Do you blame yourself for being lazy or wasting time?

Meaninglessness might be the real root cause. 

If you find what you do meaningless, the remedy is not to just “shape up”.

The next time you feel unproductive or lazy, ask yourself if the task you are working on is meaningful to you.

If it isn't, stop calling yourself lazy or a procrastinator. 

Instead, get creative. 

Find the meaning in the task, or find a way to get it done without letting it drain your energy.
