Clue 1 / Read the signs
When something we do makes us smile or feel energised, it is motivation we experience.
Clue 2 / Bank the rewards
When we run out of motivation, it’s good to recall how rewarding things have felt previously, and bring that feeling into the present.
Clue 3 / Avoid energy sappers
We usually know what saps our energy and demotivates us, so avoid these fair and square.
Clue 4 / Make the boring interesting
We all have dull tasks on our plates, find novel ways to make these interesting, appetising.
Clue 5 / Take a break
A change of scenery (real or visualised) allows us to recharge, giving our motivation a better chance of lasting.
