Key Ideas

Money Doesn’t Motivate

Many people think money alone will be enough to motivate them, and whilst that may do so initially, it’s very hard to sustain financial motivation if the work you are doing actually drags.

At the beginning of your path of achieving goals, you should define what really matters.

Procrastinate Wisely

Procrastination gives you a break which is a good thing for your brain

If you become distracted, it can be your brain’s signals that you should have a break. However, if you procrastinate all the time and don’t accomplish your daily tasks, it means that you should change something.

Exercise

If you realize that you stuck, go for a walk. Fresh air helps to step away from everything and refocus on your tasks. 

Spending a few minutes outdoors can also help you have better mental clarity.

Find Inspiration

It’s necessary to surround yourself with people who can motivate and inspire you to work hard.

Youtube videos are very useful for this purpose because it’s easier to get the main idea by visual information.

Celebrate Accomplishments

Rewards are an essential part of the motivation. 

Reward yourself every time when you reach your goal whether it’s big or small.

These “intertemporal markers” encourage us in two ways: by making people disconnect from past failures, and by promoting a big-picture view of life.

Eat some chocolate

  • It increases both serotonin, a neurotransmitter that promotes calm, and also phenylethylamine, which promotes stimulation. White chocolate does both even more intensely.
  • It triggers a release of dopamine, which will elevate your heart rate and significantly increase motivation.
  • It also results in a mild antidepressant effect, literally because your brain responds to the stimulants by promoting blissful emotions.

Other dopamine-inducing foods that can help maintain a healthy diet: blueberries, spirulina, and fish high in Omega-3 fats.
