I am not a trained psychologist but most of you know that I have stayed in my share of Holiday Inn Express Hotels and if you are losing or have lost your energy for the job, your very first step is to make an appointment with your doctor.
Don’t slough this off. Don’t be in denial of the possibility of a serious physical or mental health issue. (I believe clinical depression is a growing malady in our profession.) Lack of energy and/or enthusiasm could be a serious symptom.
If you are in a job that is give, give, give and then go home and repeat it there, you may not be getting enough in return. When this happens I believe the door is wide open for depression.
Again, I’m not the expert here, just the observer and it’s my observation that a doctor can help far more than a motivational speaker or blog writer.
