If you are feeling lethargic and not excited to chat with your colleagues, that may be an indication that you are not in the right job. That’s ok.
We each have our own nature, interests, and aptitudes.
You may have a very good job, but if it does not harmonize with your nature, you will feel drained.
This doesn’t mean, btw, that you should quit your job right now. There are times when it makes sense to remain in such a situation. One such example would be when the exigencies of family force you to take the conservative route. You have two kids in college and one about to finish high school. Another would be because the pay is so exceptional that persisting in the position will allow you to accumulate enough assets quickly that it will open up massive new options. A third would be when you have no idea what else to do with yourself.
But make no mistake. If you are grinding your way through the day, it may simply be that you are staying in a job/situation that simply is not a good match for you.
If that is the case, it’s time to swim in a different direction (which, again, doesn’t mean immediately quit your job).
