• Quick Tips to Staying Motivated

    Posted on March 23, 2012 by in Business Ideas, Performance Management

    Motivating yourself to excel at your job or to be an example to your employees, should not be something you do only when you are in the mood to do so.  It should be an ongoing process that is entwined into every aspect of your business life such as your mental attitude, physical well-being and appearance, interaction with others and your off-the-job environment.

    Motivational experts get paid big bucks to tell working professionals why they need to stay motivated in order to strive for success. The question is how can we then motivate ourselves without having motivational experts to tell us what to do.

    Here are some quick tips which would help one to stay motivated in their lives:

    • Maintain a Positive Attitude – We need to realize that life is only 10% of what happens to us and 90% of how we react to it.  We are responsible for our own actions and attitudes, and changing them when there is a need to do so.  When we are with people/things that are uplifting and positive, we feel good and energised.  We need to have more confidence in ourselves and change whatever needs changing. If we can make our workplace a more uplifting and positive work environment, we will find happier workers and higher production. We might even find our employees look forward to coming to work!
    • Create Positive Affirmations -  The reason for writing goals for your business is the same as creating positive affirmations on paper.  What your eyes can see and ears can hear, your mind will believe.  Do try it!  After you have written your goals or affirmations down, read them aloud to yourself – and do it every morning when you get into work.  You will be amazed at what happens.  Come up with a set of new ones every month.  Statements such as, “I’m an important and valuable person,” or “I know I can make good use of my time today.”  Repeating them out loud everyday at a set time will help reinforce positive actions.
    • Make Sure Break Times Are Really Break Times -  This is an area where most bosses/entrepreneurs have trouble managing.  We always become anxious and concerned about the big project or situation we are working on.  We need regular break schedule so that the break helps us to release the tension in our work.  If we work on a computer this is even a greater problem because we may end up working in that same position for hours.  The best answer to this is to set a reminder on your appointment calendar for every 2 hours, and let the computer reminder chime send us the alert to move around.
    • Exercise, Exercise, Exercise -     By “exercise” I do not mean that we should go out and join a gym and spend our lunch-time, 3-days-a-week there working out.  What is really beneficial and workable is that at those chiming alerts from your computer, we can get up and walk around our desk or room.  Maybe we can stop our work temporarily and go outside to enjoy some sunlight or just get up and do a few stretches.  Concentrated, tense thinking – typing – drafting plans – or whatever we work at, makes all our muscles tighten up and knot up.  Periodic stretching, even at our desk, or just getting up and walking over to the window and getting a different view can help.  There is nothing more relaxing than getting up from our desk and walking over to a peaceful, serene, seascape or pastoral painting and just watching it visually.  Momentarily transporting your mind out of work and into that place of relaxation does wonders.

    It only takes a little concentrated effort on our part to keep motivated and productive, which can lead to more success
