Thank you for the replies.

I feel very similar when I am depressed. It may be a good idea to speak to your doctor, mentioning the lack of motivation and also the nightmares. Your doctor can help you to find a cause and a solution. I hope all goes well for you.
I´ve been in treatment for depressive episodes before (still somewhat am) and I recognize the feeling of having no motivation, power or drive I had back then, but most times I lack the depressive mood now. Occasionally I´ll feel pretty low and often very anxious, but having no goals or plans is something that is always present and always has been, even before I started feeling this way. It´s also part of my inability to plan even days ahead, get organized and start/finish projects and I really do not know how to deal with those.

If nightmares were a consistent problem for me, I would consider asking about it. I only get them every now and then, sometimes more frequently when stressed out, but overall still not too often. I´ll keep what you said in mind though just in case.
