Lacklustre to Enthusiastic

In sport who wants to witness a lacklustre performance

We expect more from our professional sportsmen and women, sometimes they let us down


Before we cast that first stone, we’re all enthusiastic — Right?

Lacklustre? Not me — really, who are we trying to kid.

How many times do you get up in the morning bemoaning the fact you’ve got to go to work

How many times do you have the feeling of “Just can’t be bothered” or am I the only one

Lacklustre – Lacking in vitality, force, or conviction; uninspired or uninspiring

Yep that’s the definition and I can’t say I’m not guilty of Lacklustre — How about you?

As we go through this tumultuous time it’s interesting to reflect on what really matters

What’s important in life — Let’s not go as deep as the meaning of life  — 42


Rather, what can we get enthusiastic about — If we’ve got to work why not be enthusiastic

This is so important when you look at the two trifecta’s at play

Apparently — The Career Satisfaction Formula — Has three main characteristics

  1. Doing what you’re good at
  2. Doing what you find meaningful and can get enthusiastic about
  3. Doing what gets you paid

Unfortunately The Abject Career Misery Formula or Burnout

Also has Has three main characteristics

  1. Exhaustion
  2. Cynicism (less identification with the job)
  3. Feelings of reduced professional ability.

So that’s great satisfaction or crash and burn

With those two options makes sense to have a rethink

Enthusiastic — Having or showing intense and eager enjoyment, interest, or approval

So when you wake up feeling lacklustre, can’t be bothered, disappear under the covers


You understand the consequences — Burnout — Then wisdom would have us

Take a long hard look at where we are and find a different path

From Burnout to Enthusiasm — there’s absolutely something out there for you

That will light you up, fill you with excitement, momentum and motivation

Go for it — Your Enthusiastic Performance awaits you.
