How to Root Out Procrastination Habits + Achieve Healthy Motivation


That leaves 85% of the workforce disengaged and waiting for motivation to strike or waiting to leave their jobs entirely.

Employees work 20% more efficiently when motivated. (Gallup)

Unfortunately, many motivation tactics that are based wholly in negativity—like shame, punishment, or judgment. You’ll find none of that here.

Motivated employees will actively search for new ways to improve productivity, improve efficiency, and reach out to help those around them.

You heard it here first. Motivation is contagious—in the best way.

But, how do you get—and stay—motivated? What if the motivation is simply absent?

Well, you find it and you use it. Let’s start from the bottom...

+ You’re bored and tired of the same work.

+ Conversely, you’re so overworked that you’ve lost the passion and creativity that used to be the core to your best work.

+ You and everyone around you is feeling uninspired and disinterested.

+ You spend your workday doing the bare minimum to check things off the list.

+ You’re constantly procrastinating to the last possible second which is taking a toll on your output, your stress, and your entire life outside of work.

Motivation is crucial to your work—especially as you progress through your career.

Motivation can come from within (intrinsic) or from the outside (extrinsic) and it’s important to balance the two at work, but why?

Most of our day-to-day work is extrinsically motivated, because our jobs hinge on it, but what if we knew exactly how to infuse our passions, interests, and strengths into our work, too?

When we break our intrinsic and extrinsic motivators down, balance them out, and allow them to work together, we become motivational powerhouses.

When our motivation peaks, we enter a productivity high that is totally safe for work, FLOW.
