How To Stay Motivated

Listen On

There is no secret process to staying motivated. Often times, people think I must have a super power to do all that I do. Or some supreme innate source of infinite motivation deep within. And nothing could be further from the truth.

Instead, I rely heavily on habits and routines. There are so many days when I’m not motivated to exercise. Or to finish a project that I’m working on. But that’s when I discover that creating habits really is a super power.

I’m a firm believer that:
  • Habits precede motivation. Setting routines and developing habits, help keep you motivated, so you aren’t dependent on the “feeling motivated” to exercise or complete tasks
  • Setting implementation intentions helps to create a plan that encourages follow through
  • An atomic or key habit can change your entire routine
Take a listen.
