Key Ideas

Unplanned Happy Memories

We normally leave our ‘special moments’ to chance. Our cherished memories are usually unplanned, apart from the big occasions like our graduation or the day of our wedding.

We need to learn how to construct events on purpose that can be remembered throughout our lifetime, giving us nostalgic ammunition for our flashback gun.

Factors Of Motivation at Work

The number one reason for employees to leave their jobs is the lack of recognition, praise and appreciation.

In research spanning decades, employees were asked about their motivation factors at work and had only one common factor across 46 years, which was the appreciation they got from the employer for their hard work.

Celebrate The Moments Of Pride

A person does not have to win the Nobel Prize to be appreciated.

Any milestone, no matter how tiny, is a great way to ‘break the script’ and make their life memorable. Build good relationships, deepening them with little surprises of goodness and celebration.

Moments Of Connection

Working and struggling together in meaningful, challenging situations create great engagement and lifelong bonds.

The team activity which is result-oriented and is of the ‘low-ordeal’ type helps people get closer. This is seen in action in wartime when soldiers become lifelong brothers, having fought a war together.

    Feeling the importance of our actions

    If we really want to be motivated, having a goal is not enough. We need to feel something. When we feel that what we do has meaning, we will feel motivated.

    Workers who fail to live up to their potential have lost sight of the importance and meaningfulness of their own jobs. If you could remind employees of the importance of their jobs, they might become highly motivated and productive.

    Giving mundane jobs meaning

    We can find meaning when we tell ourselves stories. Reflecting on ourselves and how we see ourselves creates an almost instant change in behavior. Self-awareness involves comparing the self to the ideas of what we should or could be.

    When people are told that their actions are being filmed, they consistently change their behavior. They work harder and are more consistent in their actions and values.

    Focus on what you two share, and make your unique bond the best it can be.
