No matter your industry or job title, you’ve probably experienced moments where you’ve lacked motivation — don’t worry, we’ve all been there. Given the current climate we’re in, as professionals adapt to changes in their careers, adjusting to unexpected layoffs, or even just trying to transition to this new normal, staying positive and motivated is harder than ever.
