Keep a list of the "hardest problems" on hand for moments when inspiration may strike. Just pick that hardest one and work on it giving your 100% to it.
Journaling your ideas and feelings extensively when you're motivated can help you better understand and harness that feeling.
"I take notes about what I am feeling, what is motivating me and how this motivation is guiding me," " I can leverage these notes later to motivate me when I need them the most."
If you're feeling more motivated than usual, capitalize on that energy by working on the tedious things you don't like or have been putting off the longest.
"This could be tasks like clearing my inbox or a bit of data entry," Balkhi adds. "A surge of energy will make even boring things feel manageable, and it's a great way to help my business by making progress on important tasks."
Motivation can be a powerful tool to propel you toward your goals. The best thing you can do in these moments is to set new small goals that will help you reach your bigger goal.
"The first step is to identify what's holding you back from reaching your goal,"... "It could be fear, lack of time or even just laziness."
"You can't lose 25 pounds in a single day, no matter your motivation," Powell explains. "The same is true in business, whether you're building a team or fundraising. Use motivation to create a list of tiny behaviors that move you toward your goal -- ones that you can do every day, regardless of how motivated you feel then."
During your bout of motivation, Daisy Jing, founder ofBanish , recommends coming up with a lot of reminders that will help you boost your motivation next time you feel down and unproductive.
"Take photos and document what it feels like to be successful in whatever you accomplished by being motivated that day," says Jing. "The idea is to remind yourself why and how you have to stand on your feet again so you won't have to try so hard to feel productive again."

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
