When you don’t feel motivated, your productivity is affected, you may procrastinate and find it difficult to do the things you need to get done each day. You may find yourself stuck in that rut for weeks on end or even longer without knowing how to get out of it.
Luckily, there are steps you can take to help you come out of the rut and start motivating yourself again so that you can finish what needs to be done. Here are six ways to get motivated so that you can finally be productive again!
Take action on something
Taking action means doing something, even if that something is small. If you’re in a funk at work, try one of these strategies
Do something you enjoy
If you’re unmotivated, start doing something you enjoy. Whether it’s walking in a park or taking your dog for a walk, starting with something easy and enjoyable will put you in a positive mindset, which can help you get motivated. Then, if your motivation level stays high, try moving on to work tasks that require more time and effort but still interest you.
Take time out to reward yourself
No matter how old you are, or what you do for a living, or where you live, every once in a while you need to pause and give yourself a little pat on the back. It’s important to keep yourself motivated and engaged. Treating yourself often keeps your energy up, allows you to appreciate what you have and helps keep you striving toward new goals. Here are some fun things that can help motivate your career
Set daily reminders
Place a calendar in your workspace and set it to go off at 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. every day. Each time it rings, write down one thing you can do that day that’ll make you closer to achieving your dream career.
For example, at 8 a.m., if getting fit is your goal, set out for a morning run. At 8 p.m., plan to finish up work early so you can hit the gym after dinner.
Setting out small goals each day will help keep motivation levels high enough over long periods of time that they don’t fade away by lunchtime or dinner time—which they easily could without reminders like these (hint: remember Pavlov’s dog). Remember: No matter how small or mundane an action is today—it’s adding value towards whatever goal you have!
Reward yourself for achieving your goals early
Start small and reward yourself for achieving your goals early. When you’re just starting out, you may feel like setting lofty goals and working hard will get you what you want. But it’s okay to allow yourself some rewards along the way! In fact, if you don’t celebrate your successes with some form of recognition, it could be discouraging when results don’t come as quickly as expected.
Reflect on how far you’ve come
With everything you’ve accomplished so far, you deserve a pat on your back. Take time to look back at your resume and see all of your accomplishments. When you think about how far you’ve come, it will be easier for you to stay motivated. Be proud of yourself!
