Identify the Problem
Losing interest in your job can happen when you’re no longer feeling challenged at what you do. While some employees like to stick to a certain routine, others need a regular change of pace. There are also numerous factors in the workplace that can cause you to feel unmotivated such as a deteriorating relationship with your coworkers or your boss, a toxic working environment, and lack of appreciation for your efforts. Creating a list of what you don’t like about your job and ranking each item based on its importance is the first step in reviving your career interest.
Develop a New Skill
The day you stop learning is the day you are dead. Once your own learning curve starts going down, you need to start looking for a new learning experiences. Don’t overcomplicate things by obsessing over every last detail and choose a skill that you think will work and give it a try. Even if you fail, take a lesson from this incident and move on to the next project. What you need to understand is that mistakes are not failures, they are simply the process of eliminating ways that won’t work in order to come closer to the ways that will.
Take Some Time Off

Employees who take regular breaks from their work are much more creative and energetic than those who stay glued to their desks all day long. While giving your employees too much time to “play” might seem counter-intuitive, studies have revealed that taking regular breaks and vacations reduces stress, which can lead to better ideas and increased innovation.
