Finding That Get Up And Go Motivation
No matter how much you will it done, the work you have to do isn’t going to do itself. Finding your motivation will be easier on some days than others, but the key is to make sure you can get to that motivation when you need it the most.
Everyone has those days where you don’t want to do a thing but sit on the couch and watch TV. But this will not get your work done by procrastinating. Here are some tips to get you off your butt and gain motivation and inspiration.
Create Urgency For The Task
When you create urgency, or some type of deadline because you know the project is on the last hours before its due, you’re going to get more done in those last few hours than you did in the days before.
If you can fake yourself out into a deadline, you’ll get more done than if you tell yourself you have a few days and it can wait.
Just Do It
No more excuses. Sit down at your work area, and do what needs to be done. Once you finally bite the bullet and get over whatever it is that was stopping you from starting the project in the first place, you will find it easier to get more done than you thought. Procrastinating will only keep you stuck to the computer and then frustration sets in.
Why I love What I am Doing
If you still find yourself having trouble, think about the reasons why you love this project. Even if it’s the most boring project in the world and you loathe it, it has to be done, and there’s something that will make you love it—even if it’s what you can do when it’s done.
And, when it gets finished, you’ll be able to cross it off your to-do list, and move onto something you enjoy more. Plus, when the project is complete, that’s money in the bank.
Money you need to pay your bills.
Whether the work is for a company or for your own business, you will still be able to pa your bills. Get the work done, and then this gives you better time management skills for the next project.
So What are you Waiting for?
Now that you know what hinders your productivity and what you can do about it, let’s move onto building the ideal work environment, to help keep you as productive as possible.
