I am not superhuman. I lose motivation. I get bored. I get worn out from constantly putting in the hours to grow my busienss.
This is the same for everyone. We all experience this. The important thing is to 1) recognize it and 2) figure out a way to combat it when you do recognize it.
I was going through a bit of a slump recently and could not get myself motivated to do ANYTHING. Working on the podcast was a grind. Engaging on social media was a grind. I literally wanted to do nothing.
But I do genuinely enjoy creating and work on building my business, so what gives? Why can’t I get that motivation and fire to just start even the simplest of tasks.
I’d often find myself procrastinating, putting everything off until the night before, and then staying up late trying to finish it all in the shortest amount of time possible. Sound familiar?
I knew something had to change, so I started experimenting with different strategies and tactics to find motivation (or at the very least just start). After testing this for about a month, I think I finally figured out the secret.
In this episode, I share the exact strategy I’m using to get my motivation back, hit my goals, and stop procrastinating!
3 Main Takeaways from The Episode:
By the end of this episode, you should have learned:
- Why you’re so unmotivated to get started and keep procrastinating.
- What is time block project management and why this might be THE THING that saves your productivity and sanity.
- How planning your entire project ahead of time (even if you don’t know what it all entails), helps set you up for greater success in completing your projects.
