We all know that motivation is the key to getting things done. But how do we find it? In this post, I’ll show you how to use categories to get motivated in new ways—and even reward yourself for good behavior.
When you’re feeling overwhelmed by your to-do list, categories can help you break down your tasks and prioritize them in a way that feels less daunting. For example: I have a lot of stuff on my plate right now, but if I organize it into categories (like “work”, “personal”, and “home”) then it’s easier for me to see what needs doing first.
If we just see the list of things we need to do without putting them into categories or groups, it will be hard for us to decide where we should start with our work.
Categories help us prioritize our tasks so that we can get through all of them in order without sacrificing any important tasks or forgetting about something important along the way.
You can motivate yourself without being mean to yourself.
You can motivate yourself without being mean to yourself. You can be kind to yourself while still being motivated to achieve your goals.
When you think of motivation, what comes to mind? Negative words like “should” or “have to”? Are you trying to motivate yourself by beating up on yourself? Who is that going to help?
There are ways that you can motivate yourself without being mean, and it’s not really that hard if you put some thought into it. The first thing is to find out what makes YOU feel good about doing something—what motivates YOU!
I think we all need to be more forgiving of ourselves. If you slip up, it’s okay! Just remember that you have a lot of power in your own hands, and when you exercise that power through kindness, it will help make your life better.
