Simple Tips for Staying Motivated At Work!
We all can get overwhelmed and loose our energy and drive. Tasks pile up, conflicts arise, or the never satisfied client calls again, and we leave the office feeling drained and exhausted. One day blurs into another, and we slowly become more drained and loose further motivation. Don’t give into the temptation to quit or the feeling of burn-out. Before you quit your job or sink deeper into your rut, consider these tips from Corporate Graphics of America.
Look at your attitude. Are you truly dissatisfied with you job, or are you letting outside stress affect your work? We are all human. Naturally family problems or health issues can affect our outlook. Take some time and evaluate your attitude. Is your lack of motivation from your job or from outside sources? If your job truly is your culprit, take some to evaluate where you are and where you are wanting to go. Write out some goals. Make a plan to help you get excited again.
Be grateful for what you have. Sometimes we focus so much on the negative, that we forgot to be thankful for what we have. Make list of what you like about your work and what you are good at. Celebrate each success - big and small. Sometimes it is the smallest of things that re-motivates us and recharges our passion. Encouragement can come from a simple “thank you” from a customer or compliment from a coworker. On a side note, don’t forget to compliment and encourage others. You never know what a difference you may be making in someone’s day or outlook. So pass it on!
Lastly, don’t forget to take some time for yourself. Having a work-life balance can make all the difference to regaining your passion and motivation. Don’t bring your work home with you. Spend time with your family and friends doing activities you love. It’s okay to take a day off occasionally to just clear your head and relax. You’ll be a better employee for it. Schedule “me-time” into your schedule and take a vacation. Even if you don’t go anywhere and have a “staycation,” a week-long break bring can help you come back to job refreshed and reenergized.
No one likes feeling burned out or without their usually drive and motivation. Take some time to evaluate where you are and to take care of you to help you stay inspired and motivated and work.
