Even the attractive pay perk this company offers me does not excite me anymore. PHOTO | FOTOSEARCH

What you need to know:

  • When was the last time your contribution to the business was acknowledged?
  • Perhaps it is your perspective rather than the pillars of your external world that have shifted.
  • Even with a career that suits you, the tide of enthusiasm rocks back and forth.

Q. When I started working as a computer engineer two years ago, I was burning with passion and enthusiasm. I even earned a rare promotion after one year. Today though, this desire has dipped and its place taken by lethargy. I only work because I have to. Even the attractive pay perk this company offers me does not excite me anymore. This is what I always wanted to do. And I don’t think I would work in a different profession. What could possibly have slowed me down? Please advise me.
