Is the thrill gone? What to do when your mojo’s missing at work . . .
For many employees, feeling burned out and uninspired is nothing new. But going through the motions impairs more than just work performance—it affects your well-being. Wouldn’t it be better to feel as engaged and energized as you were on day one?
Fortunately, everyone has the ability to rekindle inspiration. The key is to quit waiting for it to happen and take control of the process yourself. Whether you’re wrestling with fear, disconnectedness, boredom, lack of creative outlets, overwhelm, or other issues, Find the Fire helps shake off the malaise and dial up the motivation.
Packed with insights, exercises, inspiring stories, checklists, and more, this potent self-help guide identifies nine forces that drain inspiration and delivers tips and advice for turning things around, including how to:
Start learning and growing again • Reconnect with coworkers and your boss • Stop procrastinating • Empower yourself • Stay in control during tough times • Overcome fear and embrace risk • Produce work you’re proud of • Boost your self-confidence and personal presence • Leave your mark • And more
Instead of asking what inspires you, the deeper question is, how did you lose inspiration in the first place? Learn to find it again—and fuel greater fulfillment and success.

Find the Fire takes a deep look at the “anti-muses” that drain inspiration and passion. Uplifting and funny, the author helps you identify the obstacles that can block creativity and hamper innovation. You’ll see the parts you can control and learn how to cope with the parts you can’t.
I found this approach far more inspiring than other books on the topic of rediscovering inspiration at work. Instead of artificially sweetened platitudes and a multitude of exclamation points, Scott Mautz provides an honest view of the forces that dampen our passion and how to use that knowledge to reignite it.
