    Hey

    anybody ever just hit these periods of time where you just feel like doing absolutely nothing productive?

    As in, no focus or ambition for anything work related?

    It's just like no matter how hard I've been working before, and how close I am to reaching a current goal, I don't want anything to do with it.

    I get like this every now and then, and I just burn my days for however long it lasts. So far the longest has been a week and half.

    Regardless of the reason, I should be able to break out of it, but I just rationalize it. "I mean I've been working so hard, I earned a few days off... "


    Can anyone relate?

    Past two months were full of technical glitches that drove me up a wall.

    It could have really ended up badly, but I didn't stop working even though the problems were extending my already long hours, but things are getting fixed and picking up.

    When we're faced with a problem that we must overcome -- again, a problem that we must overcome -- you will more often than not rise to the occasion. Survival and all that. If you're allowing yourself to almost get to your goal, then stop, it could be that you're way too comfortable to feel what life is.

    What are your goals in life? What do you see as your purpose?

    Concentrate on something different for a while and you will regain the passion for your current work

    Yeah thanks pitgam, sometimes I just have to be reminded. I'm going to take another break, I sort've have been but it's been unwanted. I'm just going to accept it as a break and enjoy it, it will pass and soon I'll be back at it full time again.
