Keeping It Simple
When thinking about motivation, the first thing you need to do is create your space around you at work and home. This space needs to remain simple and positive.
The things around you have a lot to do with the way you feel and if you will be motivated or stuck in a funk.
Your office space should contain and display items that make you feel positive about life and about reaching goals. If you have goals and things you would like to do it might be a good idea to post these things on the wall of your office or your cubicle. This way you have a constant reminder of the things you would eventually like to do.
Only you know where you would like to be in the future. You should create your space as a constant and positive reminder that you are working to get there. Create a positive atmosphere around you no matter where you are. This also includes the car you drive. If you spend many hours in the car commuting every day make it a positive space. This means clean it up. Don’t drive around a depressing vehicle that is full of trash and paperwork. Get your car detailed and begin to take care of it. You would be surprised how good you will feel when you clean up your car.
A clean home and clean office space make a really big deal when you need motivation. If you find yourself sitting in mounds of paperwork you might have the attitude you are never going to complete the things you need done. A messy workspace can be frustrating and depressing. It may cause you to procrastinate and even be disorganized with your thoughts as well as your work.
A messy and dirty home can be depressing and disabling. Many people will sit around procrastinating for hours in a messy home. It is amazing how good a clean home can make you feel. The best thing you can do is clean up your home. You will feel great and ready to take on anything. Get rid of those clothes which have been sitting in the closet for years that you haven’t worn once. Clean out the mess in the shed and the garage. Don’t just wipe down the counters and do the dishes. A clean house means creating a new space that is positive and ready for the new to come into your home. Get rid of all of the old.
The space you spend your time in includes your car, home, and office space you work in. It has a lot to do with the way you feel and the attitude you have when you wake up in the morning. Clean up the spaces you live in and make a positive atmosphere for you to enjoy and want to have a good day. You will finally see the goals as achievable rather than sit around thinking about them.
