Everyday I wake up with motivation that when I start to try and work immediately goes away. I cannot focus on any work and tell myself everyday that tomorrow/next week I will try. Anxious to be fired, but rated successfully at work (when I do i am fast and efficient). Started a new job this year and was remotivated but have since gone back to old ways. I can’t make myself do work - whatever that work may be. Has anyone experienced this?

This is very common, and just think, we all see each other every day and never “see” it. It is easy to get stuck, and it’s very hard to work out of it. Can you pinpoint any sources of it? I face this problem often, and there is not an easy solution. Some of mine right now is due to 1) SAD, 2) Overwhelming tasks on my plate just, 3) inability to delegate tasks downward

Just giving a bit of Gyan to fellow fishers Please please do not ever use CTC comparison between current and next company. If you get an offer, do an in hand calculation. Some companies add Retirals like Employer PF, Gratuity along with Insurance, furniture allowance as part of your CTC. Others don't. Sone also have higher variable package. So when you do a CTC delta you may get a 20% hike but when you discount the above things you will fall short and may end up making less. So choose wisely.
