Motivation affects your work

Motivation affects your work

No matter how passionate you are about your work, you will run into aspects of your career that you are not fond of.

Our overall experience is dictated by our mindset and approach we take. If we come to work feeling drained, we will not feel motivated to do our job. If you can figure out what motivates you, you can become a happier, more productive worker.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE ARTICLE

When we become used to the daily grind, we end up losing ourselves along the way. It is only when we approach work with the mindset of providing value that we gain a sense of achievement.

Ask yourself why you have this job. Does it involve work you are passionate about? Is there something you particularly enjoy about this work?

Our future may be more exciting than our current situation. You can leverage that to your advantage by using it as motivation to work harder.

Use each job you hold as a stepping stone towards your goal. Your current position serves a purpose, whether it is to build your resume, teach you skills, or help you save money to look for a new job.

To keep you highly motivated, set a deadline, and break your goals down into smaller, achievable tasks.

Remind yourself regularly why you should be motivated.

  • Many people make their jobs seem worse than they actually are. Avoid this by reminding yourself that every day is a new day. You can change your schedule to add exciting things.
  • If you are satisfied with the work you do and the value you provide, you can still make notes to remind you of the services you offer and how they help others.

Deepstash helps you become inspired, wiser and productive, through bite-sized ideas from the best articles, books and videos out there.

In a fundamental sense, workplace happiness comes when:

  • We enjoy doing the tasks assigned to us
  • We feel right about the people we are working with
  • We are happy with the financial benefits we get from the job
  • We have the scope of improving our existing skills
  • We feel respected and acknowledged at work

Just focus on your sense. You don’t need to close your eyes. You don’t even need to be sitting down.
