Finding the Spark

I’ve struggled with motivation lately. This isn’t because I’m intrinsically unhappy. I have a good life, particularly outside of work. Somehow, I lack the va-voom to climb corporate mountains or to tackle oppressive managerial beasts these last few months.

This pains me because I don’t want to remain a corporate nobody. Like a lot of people, I’d like to leave my mark somehow. It’s just that when that burning fire inside cools to a tiny ember, the goal seems so far away and reviving it seems a tedious chore.

Is it my age? Have I been at this too long? Or do I just need a moment to recharge?
