I was working on a project that went on forever and I’m frustrated. I have nothing to show for my hard work. I feel like the project is stagnating. Nothing changes day after day and I wonder how long can I go on without giving up? Doubt has penetrated me. I know walking away isn’t the answer, but this one negative feelings You’re starting to kill my creativity.
Staying motivated is even harder when it comes to planning things that seem to take years. This doesn’t mean that we should stay away from these projects. Write down these tips and strategies to help you stay focused.
1. Feed your soul. There are many ways to do this. Professionally, I believe the best way to do this is to surround myself with people who are positive and want the best for me. I need everything support for that it is possible for me to get up
When I’m with a team, I know that trusting them can benefit me. I am in contact with these people to brainstorm and ask for their opinion. When I ask a colleague or someone to respect their opinion, they usually give me a solution to a problem that was troubling me.
2. Don’t lose sight of the goal. Why is? You forgot it? Most of us forget why, one way or another, we started by focusing on our daily problems. Do what you can so as not to forget your goals.
Write them down on a piece of paper and paste it into your computer. Find a picture that represents your goal and hang it in a place you will see every day. Remembering why I do what I do always fills me with energy.
3. Ask for help. If something doesn’t work, stop and ask your boss, manager, or mentor how it’s going. Dont wait too long. When I get stuck I know that someone with experience may be able to share some light on my problem. Listen, but ask questions too. I still call my mentor when I have a problem and he always helps me get back on track.
4. Be inspired. When I need encouragement, I read David J. Schwartz’s The Magic Of Thinking Big. It always reminds me of what I am capable of and how I can achieve it. Which books or blogs inspire you?
5. Have a hobby. What makes you happy outside of work? If you’re having trouble answering this question, there may be a problem. I don’t have many hobbies but I love being in my garden. My backyard is my domain. I am not dependent on other people and he is always available to me. When I am sad or stressed I like to plant things as I find it very relaxing.
6. Give something back. For a moment, stop focusing on yourself and your company. Find a way to help someone else. Donate your time.
Staying motivated isn’t easy, especially when the goal you set yourself seems further away than ever. Try not to whip yourself, but at the same time don’t be overly excited if things are going well.
Success takes time, there are red and green lights. You’ve heard this before, but I’ll say it again: better try enjoy the trip Because in my experience, reaching the top won’t be as exciting as you thought it would be.
