Are you thriving (aka motivated and energetic) or struggling (aka overwhelmed and exhausted) at work? Or maybe you’re striving (inconsistently fluctuating between the two)?

You can find out by asking yourself, Why am I working so hard?

“When I ask people that, I’m looking for the answer, but I’m also looking to see how long it takes them to answer the question, because that shows clarity or a lack of clarity. And clarity is energy in today’s world,” says Andy Core, author of Change Your Day, Not Your Life.

The people who are thriving at work can answer the question in five seconds or less—because they are more meaning oriented, and to be more meaning oriented, you have to be more clear on the “why.”

Watch to find out how you can go from struggling to thriving—how you can get re-energized, refocused and reconnected at work.
