Instead of making New Year’s resolutions make a list of the things that motivate you. Include all the things that make you feel good about yourself. Those things might be personal, altruistic, financial, physical and/or spiritual. But the ultimate payoff is always emotional. What are the things that you want to do that make you feel good. Examine that list and rate each as A. B or C. A for must do, B for should do and C for nice to do.
Then each week make sure that you spend more time and effort on A items than on B’s and C’s combined. Spend more time on B’s than on C’s
For example let’s assume this list of motivators and ABC ratings:
Of course your own list will look very different.
A – must do
Finding new job
B – should do
Learning a new language
Reading industry news
C – nice to do
Watching reality TV show
Listening to favorite music
Create your own motivational list of things that make you feel good.
Have a motivational and productive year.
