Abuja - As the end of the year draws near, and our minds wander to planning our holidays and Christmas vacations, it can be all too easy to lose sight of our goals and motivation.
And, we all know that there’s nothing worse than trying to make it to five o’clock each day when you just don’t have the motivation. But if you’ve lost your motivation at work it shouldn’t be too hard to find, you just have to know where to look for it.
Here’s what you should try:
1. Stay positive
The holidays are coming up! You’ll likely be getting the chance to spend some time with the kids and the family soon. People are acting more cheerful as the holidays approach.
These are all reasons to be a bit more positive at work, and by starting to think more positively about the small things you tend to start developing more positive thought patterns in general, making you happier and more motivated almost immediately.
2. Reiterate your goals
Check up on your goals. What are there? Are you still working towards achieving them?
It can be easy to forget the goals you set yourself earlier in the year, especially as you start getting busier as the year comes to an end. Refresh your memory on what your goals are and why you set them in the first place.
3. Change your plans accordingly
How far have you come in achieving your goals?
You’ll probably find that the goals you set yourself earlier this year are well on their way to completion, and seeing where you are with them in itself can be very motivating. What’s more motivating, once you’ve remembered why you set these goals, is adapting your strategy if need be to complete them.
Clarifying what your goals are and why you set them, and then adapting your strategy to accomplish them, is all that’s needed to get your mind back on track with a renewed sense of motivation.
