Motivation’s Easy!

Motivation’s easy…… when the “project” is something I want to do!

Motivation’s really hard when the “project” is something I don’t want to do.

If this is a true statement for you, perhaps you could spend a moment of the procrastination time asking yourself a few of the WWHW questions.

WHAT is it that I don’t want to do? By identifying the task clearly we have a better chance of identifying the blockage.

WHY don’t I want to do it? Be honest. “Just because..” is not an honest answer. You might need to break the “project” into components and start the WWHW again.

HOW can I change this? There’s a question! Can you change the process, or, can you change the way you feel about the process? Or, you might ask, “How can I build a reward into this?”.

WHEN can I start? This is an important question. Often the answer to this is NOW. And then your procrastination ends and your motivation kicks in.

Of course, if this doesn’t work for you, you can always add another W – “WHO can I delegate the task to?”

What do you think? Do you have any comments?
