Ask HN: Tips to relearn how to care about my job?
The reality is I can’t quit my job given I’m young and live in California. I got a high paying job at a recognizable tech company, but plagued with exhaustion and lack of motivation, which is killing me daily life. Anything you guys have done to dig out of a rut?
I’m taking an electrical engineering class and exploitation security class online. I’m constantly learning, which I love. I work on a product which just clones other similar products with a slightly better price point, so it’s hard to really care about the goal, but it would be nice to shift that mentality slightly.
I think long term I want to work on low level systems, but my current mental state is affecting my ability to learn effectively. Maybe therapy could help.
