Nearly everyone has been through that phase/episode where you just lack the motivation to work and it starts to feel and as though nothing works.

Most times the lack of motivation at work could make you feel terrible, bored and frustrated about your business or career. However, we’ve got great news for you as we have compiled a short list to help you stay motivated while completing your daily tasks.

1. Don’t Think About it as Hard Work

Never think of your job as hard work.

Studies have shown that when a project you’re faced with isn’t viewed as drudgery, but rather as a piece of the puzzle that’s helping you along your career path, then perhaps the energy required to do it will be easier to come by.

Here’s how Marie Stein deals with feeling uninspired”at work;

I try not to think so much about how difficult or frustrating or impossible that might be; I just think about how good it must feel to be that, or how proud I might be to have done that. Make hard look easy.

2. Task Identity

Checklist for work done.

Work is most motivating when it’s clear what, exactly, you’re accomplishing. On the other hand, nothing is worse than working all day and thinking “What did I even do today?!”

To stay motivated at the end of each day or week, make a “Got Done” list (the opposite of to the to-do list!), where you outline all of the tasks you’ve completed. For extra motivation, keep it somewhere you can see.

3. Evaluate Task Significance


Always set your tasks in order of priority.

Another key to staying motivated is knowing that the work you’re doing makes a difference in some way—recognizing the impact you’re making on your clients, company, or the world.

If you’re not totally seeing this connection, try to dig deep. You could map your weekly sales reports to the increase in your company’s bottom lines or sales unit, Or make a list of the tasks you do that reduce this cost for your company and find ways to focus on those aspects of your job more often.

4. Focus on things that really matter

Did you know that doing things that don’t mean anything costs(us) a ton of mental energy?

FOCUS

Take a minute to go through your list and take off anything that’s both truly demotivating and unnecessary for you to do. It’s not always best to finish what you started if, down the line, you can’t even remember the reason you started something in the first place. 

5. Celebrate Wins

Celebrating your wins

An acknowledgment of how good you are doing, no matter how small or big is a great step to boosting your motivation.

You may forget how crucial all the little wins are if you’re constantly waiting for a long-term payoff. So ensure to treat yourself and never underestimate how gratifying it can feel to recognize tiny advancements.
