Want to know the secret to motivation?
You already know the answer, there isn’t one.
Whether it’s motivating your kids to get ready in the morning, pushing a team towards the finish line of a project, or tackling your own work, motivation is personal.
While there are some things that motivate all of us, by and large, motivation is not one size fits all. Many factors contribute to fueling our desire to get work done.
Time of day, mood, reason for the work, skills and abilities, confidence and more, influence what we bring to the table.
When it comes to motivating yourself, take some time to see what’s happening when you are doing your best work, and what’s going on when you’re stuck in a rut. Isolating what factors contribute to your own motivation can help you replicate them more regularly.
Being motivated not only helps you do great work, it makes you feel great too.
