So, how can you find motivation in the little things in life? Here are some thoughts and some tips to help!
Finding Motivation in the Little Things.
Are you one of those people that have a difficult time finding the motivation to get things done? One of the biggest misconceptions in life is that motivation will simply fall into your lap and everything will be great! C’mon – surely you know this is not what actually happens in the real world. Success is all about action! Take action now!
Some people wait for something “big” to happen and they fool themselves into thinking they will suddenly have this rush of motivation that they need to complete a task or to get through a really tough time. So, of course, when this just doesn’t happen, people become dejected and just completely give up on whatever they were looking for motivation for in the first place!
This is just not the way to go! Instead of waiting for motivation to magically appear, why not try creating your own motivation? Why? because you can… and it’s easier than you might think!
Finding Little Things to Motivate You.!!!!!!!
The first thing to do is to ensure you have an environment that is conducive to healthy motivation.
What does this mean? Well, it simple terms, it means you need a clutter-free workspace, a computer monitor at a comfortable height and a comfortable chair at your desk. Ergonomics plays a big part in positive energy. If you are not comfortable, these things can zap you of your energy and motivation in a big hurry.
How can you expect yourself to be motivated if you have a sore neck or a sore back all day long? You’ll be too busy worrying about carpal tunnel or back spasms and you’ll need to get off task every 5 minutes to adjust your positioning!
Have you actually asked yourself this?: “How much better would I feel and would my attitude change if I worked in a place that I actually liked to spend time in?” I know the answer! Think about it – so do you!
The moment you sort out your work environment and make it comfortable for yourself and content with your needs, you’ll instantly take action, find the motivation to get started and follow through.
So, how do you identify your motivational factors?
Everyone has different and unique motivational factors. That means what works for your co-workers or friends may not work for you. What you need to do is determine the unique things that excite and motivate you. I reward myself with my favorite snack (chocolate!….lol) after completing an important task! Now here’s a bonus! Give yourself a bonus! After you have spent all this time achieving whatever it is – give yourself a pat on the back (and a chocolate bar…lol!) and reward yourself for a job well done!
I find more motivation by sprinkling mini-rewards throughout my day for each little task I tick off my daily to-do list. When you keep your motivational factors simple, you’ll keep the pressure off and get more done in less time – what a bonus!
How to Find Motivation on the Computer?
