- You are a good employee.
- It really doesn't matter whether I'm a good employee or not.
- People are counting on you to do your work.
- But those people are taking your job away from you and making your life a little hellish.
- I can't feel proud of my work because it just doesn't matter.
- Is it lunchtime yet?
Perhaps this bout of ennui has something to do with daylight savings time and the fact that I lost an hour of sleep last weekend. Or it could have to do with the fact that it feels like my life is slowly being dismantled, one occupation at a time.
I'm going to do a Web dip, but I'm not sure that E. B. White has the solution to my problem:
Am I going to start feeling more motivated soon?
And the answer from White and company is:
After lunch, they stretched out and fell asleep.
OK, that sounds like a great idea, but it certainly doesn't inspire me to greater heights, loftier goals.
It inspires Saint Marty to take a nap.
