Re: Need help to stay motivated
A late response to the original question: Near retirement, working in the service industry, I took pride in helping the customers, regardless of what Megacorp wanted for productivity. The customers thought i was dedicated, but it was pride in MY work, regardless of who my employer was. That lasted until ER, long after I had lost respect for Megacorp.
The dissatisfaction with Megacorp is what drove the saving to get to FIRE. That was making lemonade.
