Consider Your Demotivators

Part of Motivation For Dummies Cheat Sheet (UK Edition)

You may need to check if there’s anything holding you back from getting on with the task in hand. Look at the following demotivators to see if they apply to you and if you need to change your situation.

  • You don’t have enough time. Be realistic about how long your tasks are going to take.

  • You can’t afford it. Spend time working out your budget beforehand.

  • You have too many other priorities. Decide on your priorities and stick to them.

  • You feel overwhelmed. Start with a few easy tasks so you aren’t taking on too many tasks at once.

  • *The deadline is too tight. Allow for the unexpected and build in enough time for your task.

  • You can’t see any benefit. Look for a benefit, however small!

  • Your task doesn’t tie in with your vision. Review your overall vision. To keep you motivated your task needs to be linked to your vision of what you’re trying to achieve.

  • The weather isn’t right. Always an excuse; too hot, too cold. But the weather changes and so can you!
