Have you ever attempted to fall in love with your job but nothing works? You start feeling terrible, bored and like you are falling behind your career or business. If you are in this situation, you are not alone; many people have been there and have managed to get through it all. You just need to know what to do. Here are some key things to work on.
- Identify your role
Work is most motivating when you can relate to what you are doing. Your functions should be precisely known to you. That way, it is easy to work on progression and avoid feeling stagnant. If you feel like you are not progressing, consider writing a “got-done” list at the end of each day. Outline everything you have managed to do on that day on your list. By doing this, you will realize your motivation within a few days.
- Determine the significance of your role
You will feel more motivated when you understand the difference your work makes than when you do not understand. Whatever your position is, regardless of how minor or significant it is, there is undoubtedly a big difference you are making. If you do not see this connection, dig deep. Whenever you accomplish something, and you know the result, note it down. That list will always inspire you to do more every day.
- Expand your skill set
Do you feel as if you are doing the same old repetitive work day after day? It is not stimulating, and you are bored most of the time. However, when you are engaging in a host of different skill sets, you will experience a fantastic wave of motivation. Consider structuring your days such that you will be working on various tasks throughout the day. When you stimulate different parts of your brain, your motivation will be fed.
