21 Ways to Motivate Yourself

21 Ways to Motivate Yourself | Employee Engagement | Scoop.it

You'd like to think you are going to be just as motivated and enthusiastic on Day 1,672 of work as you were when you first began.

 

But sometimes we can all use a bit of help to keep going.

 

In the face of the inevitable obstacles you are going to encounter, here are ideas that have worked for me, my friends who run both entrepreneurial and micro businesses, and others I talked to.

 

1. Necessity.  This one is incredibly underrated which is why I put it first. You have bills that have to be paid and employees who are counting on you. If those two things won't keep you going, I don't know what will.

Why leadership-development programs fail | McKinsey & Company | Employee Engagement | Scoop.it

We’ve talked with hundreds of chief executives about the struggle of creating global leadership development programs, observing both successful initiatives and ones that run into the sand. In the process, we’ve identified four of the most common mistakes:

 

 - Overlooking context

 - Decoupling reflection from real work

 - Underestimating mind-sets

 - Failing to measure results

 

Sidestepping these common mistakes can help companies develop stronger and more capable leaders, save time and money, and boost morale.

5 Signs It's Time for You to Change Careers

5 Signs It's Time for You to Change Careers | Employee Engagement | Scoop.it

Many people hate change; contemplating the unknown is scary. So many stick with familiar things even though they no longer fit. This is especially true of careers. Sometimes people get stuck in a career direction or work environment that makes them terribly unhappy, and they stay there because it's tough to change careers once you have gained experience, power, and good compensation.

 

People often end up in the wrong careers by accident. They start out with a job and become proficient, so they advance and make a good living. They may even start a company in that field. They get so focused on growth, meeting objectives, or making the money to support their lifestyle, they don't realize how toxic their life has become.

If you recognise these signs then it may be time to consider a career change.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 28, 2014 7:02 PM

I left School before any of these became too engrained. I look back in incredible experiences with students and some colleagues with considerable fondness. Other colleagues and bosses less so.

James Cracknell's curator insight, July 29, 2014 4:24 AM

Recognise any of these? - I felt many of them in my career but one that is not mentioned is guilt. Guilt that you are doing a job that many would crave for; guilt that you feel this way at all; guilt that you constantly keep asking that there must be more to life yet how would others that you love feel about a sudden urge to change?
