How To Re-Energize Yourself At Work

December 28th, 2017

The repetitive nature of our jobs can make us feel like we’re Bill Murray in Groundhog Day, stuck in replay with the same monotonous tasks each and every day. It’s easy to fall victim to the mundanity and routine of our work — even if we love what we do. We feel stuck. Trapped, even. Worse yet, once we start down this path, it can seem impossible to pull ourselves out of the spiral, let alone come back to our desk energized and driven to innovate. Our advice? Disrupt your patterns. In his book, Let The Elephants Run, David Usher argues that creativity is a “mutation” in patterns to produce something new. The best thing we can do for ourselves is to get a little destructive in our day-to-day.
