"Without work, all life goes rotten,
but when work is soulless,
life stifles and dies." 
-Albert Camus

Many people experience work as drudgery and their jobs as painfully empty. A "soulless" work day can leave people feeling drained and "used up," with little desire to return to that job the next day. Soulless work consumes enthusiasm until motivation goes dry. Skills and knowledge remains intact, but the will to perform - the spirit within - is diminished. Smothering the will, burnout is a malaise of the spirit. In the process motivation, that mysterious force that gets us moving is damaged - in the worst cases, even destroyed .
