1. Reduce the daily distractions
When you have easily accessible distractions all around you then it becomes hard to focus. So shut the door to your office. Put your smartphone in silent mode at the other end of your workspace or home. And use an extension for your browser like Stay Focused to keep yourself on track.
2. Get accountability from the people in your life
Tell your friends what you will do on social media, via phone or in real life. Ask one or more of them to regularly check up on you and your progress. By doing this you’ll be a lot less likely to try to weasel out of things or give up at the first obstacle.
3. Get motivation from the people in your life
Spend less time with negative people who always look at the dark or apathetic side of things. And spend more of the time you have now freed up with enthusiastic or motivated people and let their energy flow over to you.
4. Get the motivation from people you don’t know
Don’t limit yourself to just the motivation you can get from the people closest you. There is a ton of motivating books, podcasts, blogs and success stories out there that you can tap into to up or renew your motivation.
5. Play music that gives you energy
One of the simplest things I do when I feel low in energy or motivation is to play music that is upbeat and/or inspires me in some way. A break with a few songs or working while listening to them for a while usually works well.
