Enhance Your Motivation

You make goals… but then you procrastinate. You write a to-do list… but then you don’t follow through. And this happens again and again and again. Seriously, what’s the problem? Why are we so good at thinking of what to do but so terrible at actually doing those things?

The problem is you are skipping an essential step which is exercising your motivation everyday. Here’s how you can enhance your motivation daily :

  • Self Evaluate – Understanding the problem at hand simplifies finding a solution. Analyse why you feel unmotivated, and what you can do about this underlying cause.
  • Gratitude List – Gratitude is a simple yet powerful tool. When unmotivated, write a list of things you are grateful for, making it as extensive or as brief as you would like.
  • Physical Exercise – Moving your body on a regular basis not only releases endorphins, but also reinforces your mental toughness and energies your pursuits of your goals in all areas of life.
  • Quick Vision Board – Put together a collection of images that reflect what you want your life to look like in the future. Refer back to this to remind yourself of the bigger picture.
  • Affirmations & Quotes – Write down words that inspire you, that you easily connect with. Even if not directly related to motivation, recalling quotes from your favourite authors can boost your mood and up your energy levels.
  • Free Writing – Writing has a therapeutic, calming effect. Set a timer and by writing down anything on your mind, remove emotional clutter that may be obstructing your productivity.
  • The Pomodoro Technique – Developed by Francesco Cirillo, this approach involves working fro 25 minutes followed by a 5 minute breaks and breaks tasks into manageable pieces.
  • Reverse Psychology – Accept that you feel unmotivated and that you don’t have to do anything, you have the choice to pursue your goals and make the most out of the present moment.
  • Make it Fun – Changing your mindset makes any task enjoyable. Write down three things you like about each items on your to-do list like is it a challenge? Is it a long term payoff.

  1. I am going to look at the Pomodoro Technique when I am writing. Sometimes, I feel a need to re-energize.

      The Pomodoro Technique is a time management system that encourages people to work with the time they have—rather than against it. … After about four pomodoros, you take a longer break of about 15 to 20 minutes. The idea behind the technique is that the timer instills a sense of urgency.

      Last point is answering the “Why” of doing a task that you have assigned to yourself. Sometimes thinking of achieving that end goal or the reason why you are doing it makes a difference. Example, today is Mother’s Day, call her or tell all mothers you know that you appreciate their hard work and sacrifice, why? Coz they will feel appreciated and good about themselves, isn’t that worth it?

  7. I love the idea of breaks. When I’m stymied on something or feeling overwhelmed, if I “walk it out,” I always have a clearer mind and better focus.

      While taking breaks might sound counterintuitive when it comes to boosting productivity, it’s one of the best ways to do so. Employees gain focus and energy after stepping away from their desks. A lunch break can help prevent an unproductive, mid-afternoon slump.

    This is a very good post. Saved it for future use when i will need a dose of motivation. Also i can not stop myself from mentioning the fact that I loved the picture in this post. Its very beautiful and the way she is lost in her own world and forgot rest of the world (hat on her face) is just too cool.

      Where there’s no will, there’s no way. One of the best ways to improve your personal effectiveness is to master your motivation and find your drive. If you can master motivation, you can deal with life’s setbacks, as well as inspire yourself to always find a way forward, and create new experiences for yourself, and follow your growth.
