4 Ways to Start Working When You Have No Motivation
Procrastination can be a vicious cycle. How can you break this cycle? Here are 4 ways.
#1 Remove Your Emotions From the Task
There are two focuses on procrastination.
The first one is prevention focus: when you avoid doing something to prevent a loss.
The second one is promotion focus: where you see a task that will better you but can’t motivate yourself to start it.
It is key to identify how you feel about a task and set aside your emotions so you can get it done.
#2 Act Now, Motivate Later
You don’t always have to feel motivated to start doing something.
Just getting started will give you the motivation to keep going.
#3 Don’t Break the Chain
It is important to keep up your momentum as it makes it easier to continue.
By having a routine, you don’t have to decide to do something because it’s already a part of your day.
#4 Kindling the Fire
Motivation comes after we start working towards a goal, you just have to take that first step.
Figure out what’s stopping you, create a routine, and progress will come.
