How to stay motivated


1. Understand your why

Sometimes it's not so much the what or the how that matters, but your why--the purpose behind what you're doing. Being clear about what you're working for can give you the stimulus to stay on course.

2. Define your goal

Defined goals put your ideas into action mode. It's the vital step between planning and doing.

3. Produce a plan

Once you have a goal in place, a plan is will take your vision and break down the steps you need to get it done. A goal without a plan, as we know, is just a dream.

4. Look for the bigger picture

When you have to stay motivated, think of the bigger picture. How does this relate not only to yourself but to others? How will it contribute to something important? Where will this make a difference? To accomplish more, think bigger.

5. Break goals into manageable tasks

One important key to your success will be your ability to break down your goals into shorter-term and smaller single tasks. Keep things manageable.

6. Starve your distractions

Do what you need to do to stop being distracted by people, tasks, or electronics. Devise strategies to help you start and complete tasks without any distractions or interruptions.

7. Plot your progress

When you’re working towards something, it can be really motivating if you can see evidence that you’re making progress. Draw or create a visual representation of how you’re coming closer to achieving the goal you’ve set yourself.

8. Get organized

Make sure your workplace is uncluttered so your mind can be organized. A calm environment gives you a better chance of being more efficient and productive.

9. Use rewards

Promise yourself some sort of reward each time you complete a step/task.
