    Hi,

    Anyone willing to talk to me, I'm a graduate, I have lost my motivation lately being in a job I don't enjoy and hardly any friends or people my age. I have started becoming unambitous and procrastinating. I have forgotten my goals and what I wanted to do with my life that I have lost all the dicipline I gained during my degree.

    Just looking for people to talk to in general to get me out of this weird place I am in at the moment and hopefully more productive.

    Please private message or reply here. I am in no way a weirdo - promise!

    Thanks

    I've been feeling a bit like this recently, I'm doing a job where I'm spinning around in first gear and feel like I'm getting nowhere. It's hard to work to your full potential when you're doing something that doesn't utilise it and not working towards anything, but I've sort of had an epiphany. I've decided that 6 months from now I'm going to leave (barring any drastic changes) and suddenly everything seems alright again. Because now I don't have to moan and complain when things aren't progressing how I want them to, I can just think "well I only have to put up with this for ...". Plus now I can't procrastinate because I know I need to learn everything I can, innovate as many new ideas, solve as many problems as I can within the next six months in order to set myself up for the job I want to do later on.

    Maybe if you're unhappy with the work you're doing, consider something like this? It definitely gives you light at the end of the tunnel when you can see a way out and know you're working towards something. If your workload isn't large or challenging enough, see if you can take on extra projects that play to your strengths and that you'll enjoy doing which will also benefit the company - that's the fastest way to get noticed and not only become more successful but also feel better about your situation.

    I said the same thing to myself, I was only going to stay in that place for 6 months but I am still there and it has been 18 months and no one else is hiring me. I feel worthless :/

    18 months is a reasonable length of time to stay in a job. How long have you stayed at previous jobs? and are you looking to move to a similar position with another company or something different?

    Most people work in poorly paid jobs but sometimes you have to do it, even if you just do it for the money and aren't engaged in the work. Don't leave a job without another one to go to - but once you've lined something up for yourself don't be shy about leaving.

    Was your last job before this one paid better than this one?
