There’s a very clear and current phenomenon of people experiencing a waning interest in their work.
Particularly at the beginning of the pandemic, people started spending a lot more time at home and that gave them a lot more downtime. When you’re in the office and it’s hectic, you don’t have as much space and time to think. Being at home made people start to question: how can I live a life or have a career that’s in line with what I’m actually interested in?
Many jobs were stripped down to their most essential components. Workers who may have said they enjoyed their jobs before going remote realized it wasn’t the work itself they liked.
People were no longer going into a workplace, and they no longer had those social connections. And for a lot of people, that’s what ties them to their job, whether they realize it or not.
Staying at a job while your interest in work wanes is difficult, especially if that disinterested feeling has popped up suddenly.
The most obvious solution, of course, is to leave. But, losing interest in a job is a normal reaction to the pandemic shake-up. It doesn’t necessarily mean you need to quit or change careers. There may be ways to fire up a positive relationship with your job – even if it means simply making it more palatable for now, while you look for an alternative.
