What drives you? Think about it. Have you asked yourself that question recently? In our current environment, when things feel so uncertain and scary, it can be hard to take a step back and think about what you are striving for. Many of us are just trying to hold our own and hang on, but in doing so are left uninspired and without a sense of purpose in our work. So the question becomes, how can you find that drive again and find meaning in your work? In today’s blog we’ll give you some tips to become motivated and get your work groove back!

Create Small Goals
You may think that setting a large goal, something to really strive for can be helpful, but if you are already not motivated the task will feel too daunting and you will push it off. Instead set small goals, ones you can reach throughout the day, and celebrate these small wins. These small goals can be part of helping you reach your overall bigger goal but instead you break them down into easily attainable steps.

Start the Day on a Positive Note
Begin your day, even if you are currently working remotely, doing something inspiring and uplifting. This could be blasting music you love and dancing, a workout to get your endorphins going, or something more grounded like reading a chapter out of an inspiring book or listening to a podcast. Find what appeals to your mood and start the day off on a positive note that you can carry throughout your day.

Find your “Why”
Instead of simply focusing on the tasks and projects at hand, dig deeper on what motivates you to work hard. Perhaps it’s to set a good example to your kids or supporting the mission of your company. Thinking about your reasoning “why” can help you find a sense of purpose in your work again.

Just Do It
Our last bit of advice is to stop overthinking and simply do it. If you overanalyze, or wait around for motivation to strike, it might not happen. Simply dive into the project and don’t overthink it. Setting those small goals can help a lot here too.

A lot of us are feeling emotionally exhausted by the state of the world at the moment and as a result have found ourselves in a work rut. It’s completely normal you may have found yourself in a slump but by taking some simple steps you can find your motivation and get back in the swing of things!
