The beginning of a new year always brings new goals and a chance to start fresh! By mid-year, however, many people have gone back to their old ways of doing things and are making little progress towards the goals they set at the new year.

Use these tips to try and re-motivate yourself and get out of your rut…

  • Change your surroundings – sometimes all you need is a fresh perspective… this could be something as simple as rearranging your office or changing up your daily routine.
  • Talk about it – find a business professional that you trust and respect and let them know how you are feeling. Oftentimes, they have been there before and can provide you with advice on how to get out of your funk.
  • Reevaluate your why – why are you doing what you are doing? If your reason isn’t big enough, it could keep you from reaching your full potential. Check out Simon Sinek’s Start with Why.
  • Complete your to-do list – Oftentimes a rut can happen when you see the same items on your to-do list over and over again. Take a day or two and work on wiping out any old items that have stayed on your to-do list for too long. Being able to start on something fresh can provide immediate motivation. Eat the frog. Get that one thing on your list that is bugging you…and eat the frog. When you eat the frog, nothing you do the rest of the day seems near as bad. J
