Simple ways to motivate yourself

These motivational techniques are effective, particularly when we need to beat procrastination. Take a look.

Start

1. When it is difficult starting a task,  think of the benefits of completing the task.

Knowing there is a reward at the end of the day is a good motivation for action. So, at times, you can make a deal with yourself, small or large, by promising yourself a reward for completing a task.  This works for me and it’s generally effective. I want you to try it.

2. Break it down. A motivating way to beat that initial reluctance is to try to break the task down into smaller parts and tackle them one after another. Breaking down your task or project into parts helps simplify it. Then you can focus on one part at a time.  Small successes will keep motivating you to do more. I also want you to try this.

3. Start small to create the initial spark.  The hardest part is to start. When you finish the initial small task, you’ll feel better motivated to do the next one. Try create that initial motivational spark  by tackling a bit of the whole task.

Procrastination is a robber of opportunities, immediate action is its antidote.
