Key Ideas

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.

Consider Your Current Position

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?

Keep your motivation levels high

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.

Thinking Outside The Box

When people say “think outside the box”, the box is a frame, the traditional way of thinking about a problem. Going beyond this frame can lead to radically new or interesting ideas.

Staying Inside The Box

Getting out of the box means sticking with the problem longer, and looking at it from various sides to go beyond the obvious answer.
