Execution is the most important thing when you have an idea, that’s the only way to actually move towards achieving your goals and dreams. But we would not lie that it is easy to stay consistent and motivated.
However, acting is one of the most important pieces which completes the puzzle and puts everything together.
The whole idea of taking actions is to get results; but how do we keep our spirits high enough to achieve our goals, especially when things aren’t going as planned?
Although some strategies will motivate you more than others, it’s good to experiment with several different ways of finding your motivation.
Then, when the chips are down, you can depend on one of these strategies to get back on track.
Here are some techniques you can use to motivate yourself to take action:
Break your goals into smaller, more attainable steps.
In most cases, were working towards a grand goal and breaking everything down to smaller steps gives a greater chance of reaching your end goal, rather than chocking yourself up with large quantities of things to do.
After taking each step and getting closer to your end goal, celebrate and keep going.
Know your limits.
Knowing your limits is probably one of the best things a person can discover about themselves. Albert Einstein says that the difference between a stupid person and a genius is that the genius knows his limits.
Figure out the level where you’re not doing enough and the point where you’re getting stressed out, this helps you to keep moving forward without drowning.
Do away with distractions.
There are so many we can identify as distractions, these activities, people or situations keep us from moving towards achieving our goals. We should learn to manage all forms of distractions, so they don’t determine our level of achievement.
Ask for help.
There’s this false teaching that has been rapidly circulated, and it advises against asking for help. We’re not really sure how that’s going to work out, especially when no man is an island and we all live in relation with one another.
The right way to go about it is, ask for help when you can’t sort something out all by yourself.
Find a safe place.
This doesn’t have to actually be a location, it could be an activity, which you can run to when you’re not feeling motivated enough.
This helps you get your mind off work for a while, it helps you sort of refresh when you’re feeling drained and unmotivated.
Utilize your time.
Having a good schedule and action plan would help you stay away from frivolous activities. Be specific about what you want to achieve in an hour, a day, a week, a year and ultimately.
This works hand-in-hand with breaking your end goal into smaller bits for a more efficient method of achieving your goals.
Finally, to achieve anything you need to be willing to put in the work. Nobody said it is easy, but it is definitely worth it.
Work smart and effectively!
Have a great week ahead.
