Productivity is something we long to successfully achieve on a daily basis. I hate the feeling of something taking super long to get done, and half way through I might have lost motivation anyways! If, like me, you like to keep organised and on top of your game, SUNDAYS are the perfect opportunity to do so! Get that to do list written, and those priorities ordered and away we go…
1) DO YOUR BEST WITH WHAT’S NEAREST
We can’t always start with the best equipment, the nicest outfits, the most knowledge or the most perfect ideas. Sometimes, it takes more drive to make “something out of nothing” until that something is made better! I like to tell myself this each day before I begin to complain about not having the best DLSR camera for my YouTube channel. It’s the little things in life that we must learn to appreciate and take advantage of. That’s how we become the best at what lies nearest to us. When you have mastered that, and it’s your time, move on up baby!
2) DON’T BE SO DARN NEGATIVE !!
You may be experiencing a major set back, or just a period of “baadd dayyss”, and it’s okay. We bounce back! Try to refocus your mind and remembering why you started in the first place. You can do this by
- Going For A Walk, clearing your head space with fresh (ish) air and natural sunlight always reboots the system.
- Going Back To The Drawing Board, look at the goal, your intentions and remind yourself of why you need do be productive. Maybe even rewrite a few strategies and try new ways of keep yourself on track.
- Surrounding Yourself With GOOD Friends. You may know people who don’t really understand your drive, and won’t do much motivating but rather questions you and put you off your grind. You need those friends that will lift you up and challenge you to do well, whilst helping you help yourself! #ganggoals !
3) IT’S NEVER TOO LATE
Don’t be afraid to go after something because you fear you have ‘missed the boat’. It’s not always about how old or young you are but rather, how can you be a boss at it? I know a few students who are discouraged now and again when they encounter other professionals at their age or younger. They feel like they should be there already. If that’s you, think about it this way:
- Think about all you have done in your life up until this point. Be grateful for your experiences and use what you can to your advantage!
- Who knows what tomorrow holds? I don’t know and I’m not sure you do either, so if I were you, I’d just live! Live to never regret! You don’t know until you try 🙂
- If others can do it, then so can you! We all have the capacity to achieve and go beyond what we are comfortable with, it’s usually just our personal fears that hold us back.
Challenge: Set yourself a daily reminder (or a few during each day) to be grateful for something that day. Use it to motivate you to work hard and stay positive. I’m doing it too 😉
