MORE IDEAS FROM THE ARTICLE
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.
A new place makes your brain work in a fresh way and you’ll achieve the necessary results faster.
Our brain can get used to a routine, even to places and you work on autopilot. Of course, you’ll accomplish your tasks but they will not be creative.
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.
Rewards are an essential part of the motivation.
Reward yourself every time when you reach your goal whether it’s big or small.
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.
When you do the same things over and over, that dopamine rush tends to get smaller and smaller. A great way to stay motivated is to keep growing by doing bigger and bigger things.
Take on bigger, more challenging projects at work. Once you’ve reached a running or fitness milestone, start working toward a bigger one.
Every choice has a price, but when we are motivated, it is easier to bear the inconvenience of action than the pain of remaining the same.
In other words, at some point, it becomes more painful to not do the work than to actually do it.
Procrastination is fundamentally an emotional reaction to what you have to do. The more aversive a task is to you, the more you’ll resist it, and the more likely you are to procrastinate.
Aversive tasks tend to: be boring, frustrating, difficult, lack intrinsic rewards, be ambiguous and unstructured.
