When you are tired or don't feel like working, what motivates you to keep working?
The fact that I pretty much do not have a choice in the matter so I just buckle down and do it.
Are you sure you want to delete this post?
My daughter is my biggest motivation to keep working. On some days when I feel too sick to move I still work. On those days, I will usually jsut lie down and work. And, that's possible to do as I work at home on the computer. I'm still getting my job done so that's all that matters.
Bills bills and more bills!
i will do it because:
- i will feel better i finished the job
- i will say myself, "i want to do it" instead of "what a waste of time, i dont want to do it"
and of course after i finish my job its time to relax and read some mangas!
For one, I love what I do, and for two, I have a little three year old running around that needs supported. I tend to work a home about 14 hours a day with breaks to play with my kid. Those breaks keep me energized and ready to go.
Just tell myself that it must get done and the sooner it gets done the faster I can do what I want.
This gonna make me cry. Parents. K, that's it.
Unless I am feeling so ill that I cannot get out of bed without passing out, then I will simply take a shower and eat a light meal and put on some music and get back to work. These things make my body feel better so that it cooperates with my mind and lets me get my work done. This could be useful for you when you don't feel like working.
I loud, "Don't Give UP, You can" to my heart...
Money motivates me, along with the essentials it buys, like food, shelter and clothing.
I don't rush into my day but begin with gentle stretches and yoga and even a warm shower. I ease my body into the day so that I can fully wake up and don't require myself to go from sleep to wide awake in a few minutes as many do. This helps me get ready to perform work at my best.
I just think that it is money coming in and if I don't do the work, then I don't get paid.
for everything else there is cocaine & hookers ;)
I just push myself and get it done. I just have it instilled in me that I will get it done before the deadlines.
Don't push back your bedtime just to finish a job. If you go to bed on time or early then you can get up early and finish the work very quickly that would have taken hours to complete if you had stayed up late.
The best motivation for me is my financial independance. I can spend my hard earned money on whatever I like. I can make nice gifts for my family members and not focus on price. Besides, without any occupation, I feel useless.
Lethargy is my usual enemy during weekends. Maybe because mybody knows that I have no work in the office, it would lock me to bed. And since I have my online work so I would force myself to rise. Hot choco is my wake upper and sometimes coffee even if I am not a coffee drinker. But hot choco or not, I would be motivated by thinking that my online work is my training for my future full time freelancing.
It could be a comment from a friend or family member mentioning about not seeing me working that could prompt me to work. I think we shouldn't indulge so much in work unless we want to be robots. Feeling tired or the body longing for rest is really normal and we shouldn't force ourselves to work since we will end up being less productive. I always take a break and spend my time doing something else like talking or chatting with someone until I get into the mood to work again.
