How To Make Every Monday Motivating
Mondays are not the best day of the week, especially if you have to work all weekend long.
Work can take its toll on us, and we may feel less motivated to start another week of our busy lives at the office.
It’s time to change that!
Here are some tips to make every Monday motivating and get your week off to a fresh start.
You’ve already failed.
It’s Monday, and you haven’t accomplished anything this week because you didn’t start as early as you wanted last weekend (or the weekend before).
You can’t be bothered to get out of bed, so you won’t have time to exercise before your busy day starts.
It doesn’t matter if this scenario describes the path you take every Monday. Or just one out of seven — it still adds to less productivity than you need or want in your week.
Get an accountability partner.
A great way to ensure you’re staying motivated is by finding a partner that can help keep you on track.
This can be a coworker, friend, family member or anyone else who may know your work goals and challenges.
It’s also a good idea for them to have similar goals as you, which will motivate each other when one of you slips up. They may even hold you accountable by meeting with you weekly and ensuring your productivity stays high throughout the week.
An accountability partner is crucial to your success in staying motivated. They should be someone who has similar goals as you but may have a bit more drive than you.
Set small goals
You’re human, and humans aren’t very good at delayed gratification. So if you want to stay motivated throughout your career, you’ll need a series of goals you can work toward daily.
First, break your goal into multiple, bite-sized chunks.
