Find the Fire
Once upon a time, you probably learned the thrill of a good day’s work and were inspired to work harder and accomplish more. Then the honeymoon ended, burnout set in, and you began going through the motions uninspired. Wouldn’t you love to feel as engaged and energized as you were on day one?
Seventy percent of us feel uninspired at work – which kills productivity and promise. The good news is that we can get that inspiration we once felt back. We just need to quit waiting for it to happen, and take control of the process ourselves. Scott Mautz, author of Find the Fire: Ignite Your Inspiration and Make Work Exciting Again, believes that understanding what drains our inspiration is the key to restoring that “naturally occurring” inspiration we felt when we first started in our jobs.
Listen in as Scott discusses how to shake off the malaise and dial up the motivation. You will learn about the 9 Anti-Muses that drain your inspiration, the difference between motivation and inspiration, and how to create conditions where inspiration is most likely to occur. Discover how to reconnect with coworkers and managers, boost your self-confidence and personal presence, and stay in control during tough times.
Whether you're wrestling with fear, disconnectedness, boredom, lack of creative outlets, overwhelm, or other issues, you can find inspiration again to empower yourself and produce work you’re proud of—even after many years of performing the same tasks.
