Thursday Work Motivation

Everyone knows Monday is one of the most challenging days of the week to get motivated. But Thursday’s can be just as menacing. Thursday’s are menacing because the motivation (or lack thereof) that we feel on this day can catch us off guard. If you woke up this morning and thought to yourself, “I can’t believe it’s not Friday yet?” or “Dang, it’s barely Thursday?”, then you’ve got a Thursday motivation problem.

The good news is, you’re not alone. Everyone experiences low motivation from time to time, especially on Thursdays. And the even better news is, we’ve pulled together a few quotes and handful of related resources to help you find some of that elusive Thursday work motivation.

With that said, if you’re looking for that second-wind that we could all use on Thursday to finish the week strong, let’s dive in:
