Australian government running youtube ads pointing out that if you’re sick or injured, getting back to work could be just the ticket to helping you recover!
you lazy fucker.
Succeeding at meaningful tasks is a good feeling that’ll help with lots of things.
Now of course if your job isn’t meaningful*…
Which is really what I suspect is the major disconnect. If your job is meaningless bullshit that provides zero value – to you or your boss – except check a checkbox somewhere that’s mandated by corporate or regulation, then getting back to your work is probably going to be terrible.
