No one likes to get up; you just do it because you have to. Have you ever wanted to start your day bright eyed and ready to go? There are great tips and triggers that can get you started on your day encouraged and motivated.
Getting enthused in the morning does not involve meditating in the lotus position until you cannot move or unbend, but doing practical and almost habit forming tasks.
One way that counselors suggest you get ready and motivated for the day is to leave your last task of the day before unfinished. You will want to get up and quickly finish it and move on to something else. What a way to get motivated first thing in the morning; finishing yesterday’s chores. Keep your momentum from the previous day. If you leave a task unfinished you will not have to think about coming up something to do; you already have the motivation.
Write down tomorrow’s tasks and projects today. This will make you a bit more effective when you need to get something done. Write out how you will finish the project and write down specific steps. Be precise and leave no stones unturned. If you do not identify what you need to do this motivation tool will be very ineffective. In the morning when you are trying to get back to work, you already have your steps labeled and nothing is left to imagination.
The first thing you should do when you get up is to finish yesterday’s assignment. Execute the specific steps you have written down. Finish your list. You know what you have to do and you will not be challenged by thinking what you need to do next. You are enthusiastic and ready to conquer other projects.
It has been proven that finishing an important task early in your day will keep you motivated. The creative mindset that you have now will continue to stay in gear the entire day. The next project will be easier to start and larger tasks will seem much easier to accomplish.
Although it sounds counterproductive to leave a project undone overnight, the fact that you have a goal for the next day is motivating. By stopping while you are ahead will prevent you from lying in bed and trying to think of exciting products to accomplish. You already have something that must be done. You will want to accomplish your unfinished task quickly and efficiently. Here is your morning encouragement to get up, be motivated, and be productive.
By quickly finishing off a project that you left the night before you will find that you want to get out of bed, you want to work, and you want to check a project off your to do list.
Start Each Day The Way You Intend to Continue
Always start your day encouraged and motivated. Shout to the rooftops, “I have something important to finish.” You will no longer be paralyzed by not knowing what is facing you in the morning. You can avoid procrastination and be productive. Leave a task unfinished to provide you a goal to reach in the morning.
Write out the tasks you need to finish your undone task the night before, leave it in a place you will see first thing in the morning and keep the momentum form the previous day going. Work hard all day and stop while you are ahead.
“The best way is always to stop when you are going good and when you know what will happen next. If you do this every day, you’ll never be stuck.” – E. Hemmingway.
