What’s the equation of motivation to go to work as a holiday approaches? I had this discussion with a couple folks yesterday.
m = ct / hf
c= constant desire not to be at work [employee-dependent, empirically evaluated]
t= number of days until the holiday begins
h= number of hours worked in a week
f= magnitude of importance of the holiday to the employee’s family
It may not be linear.
All I know is that I’ve got little motivation to go in today.
