Tag – you’re motivated

Tag – you’re it

Motivation is chasing you. Remember the old game of tag that you might have played as a child. One child was designated as “it” and the role of “it” was to chase and touch one of the other children. Once that child was tagged he became the new “it”.

Passing the role of “it” seemed to share the motivation of chasing. Motivation is very much like the game of chasing. Who was more motivated – the chaser or the chased? I think that the role of chasing was more motivating because that person always seemed to tag someone. The ones running away only had the motivation of escaping while “it” had the motivation of the chase.

When you want to motivate your team – play the role of “it”.

Tag – you’re it. You’re motivated.

The Sky is Falling

January 3, 2010

How’s that for motivation?

If you need motivation to get moving then maybe that’s what you need to hear. The sky is always falling – from the moment the sun rises every day in the morning to sunset.

And then the next day sky rises again only to fall again. It’s not a disaster. It’s just the cycle of life. Rise and fall.

As you might have guessed – the secret is to celebrate the rising and tolerate the fall. Because the sky will rise again tomorrow.
