Passion gives you the right attitude to do everything. It makes you creative, gives you energy and propels the desire to achieve. However, with the recent onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, finding a passion for work has become more challenging.

All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. Plan for hourly breaks, or even a staycation. Make sure you take time off from work to enjoy other things, especially activities and hobbies which you have fond memories of.

Reconnect with your original goals
If you’re feeling like your job is becoming less fun and more of a chore, then you should take a look back at why you chose to do what you do.
