Have you ever struggled with having tons of work to do, but not having the motivation to get it done? No matter who you are or what you do for a living, chances are that you’ve encountered burnout and lack of motivation at one point or another. When most people experience these emotions, they procrastinate from whatever they are supposed to be doing by surfing the web, cleaning out their closet, watching TV, or doing any other type of task that will allow them to avoid their work.
