Get Back on Top by Finding New Ways to be Motivated
It happens even to the best of us. We feel demotivated and lack the drive to get the job done sometimes. Here are effective ways to get your passion back and conquer your work.
Return to the Original Answer to WHY
Remember back to why you went into the type of work that you currently do. Why are you doing this work to begin with? Returning to that question of why will help you get your passion back and reconnect you to your purpose. As a result, you are more likely to take action today.
Counterintuitive: Go For a Break
Heading for a break might sound at first like the opposite of what you should do to get back your motivation, but it really does work! Put aside your books, art supplies or other materials and head out of the environment you are in, even if just for 30 minutes. Give your mind time to unwind and refocus; you will return more goal oriented than before.
Break It Down, Piece by Piece
It can be easy to feel overwhelmed when you look at an overall project you have to do. Instead, break down the project into smaller pieces that you can achieve step by step. That makes it feel manageable, and you feel like you can achieve each one, bit by bit, to complete the bigger picture.
Continually Encourage Yourself
Motivation does not last long, unfortunately. Keep yourself feeling the motivation by continually encouraging yourself. You may do it daily or on a weekly basis, depending how much energy you need. Ways to re-inspire yourself include watching an uplifting film, heading to an art gallery, or reading a how-to book.
These are easy ways to say goodbye to demotivation and get your work done! What are other ideas for conquering your work that you find to be useful? Let us know in the comments below.
