Real Estate Broker/Owner with Arizona Resource Realty BR518926000

Do you always make goals? Are you one of those who writes a to-do list? Do you ever have a plan, but at the end of the day, your ideas are not working. What do you think is the problem? Maybe the time is too quick? Or there are so many things going on that you can’t focus on your goals? Perhaps, the problem is on you. Yes, you make goals, but then, you procrastinate. You write a to-do list, but then you don’t follow through. You make plans, but there are other things you prioritize to do than that. And this happens, again, and again, and again. It seems like you are only good at thinking of what to do but so bad at doing those things.

Skipping the essential step is the problem. Feelings and emotions are fundamental. It is unavoidable especially for us, humans. It plays a significant role for humans to do things. However, this is also the mistake every productivity system makes. Productivity system rarely takes emotions into account. But we can’t ignore our feelings. When thought and emotion competes, passion always wins. We have nothing to do about it because it is the way our brains are structured. We also can’t fight your feelings. Fighting it will only make it stronger. But, how does this unavoidable power of compassion and emotion affect our motivation?

Emotions are an essential part of executing any plan. Yes, it is essential to think of a plan, but, we also need to feel something to make us act. So, if you are thinking about how can you associate your feelings and emotion with getting things done, here are the three simple steps.

1. Be Positive

We do procrastination the most when we are not in the mood. Negativity clearly affects the productivity of a person. On the other hand, researches show that happiness increases productivity and makes a person more successful.

2. Reward Yourself

Rewards make us feel good, while on the other hand, penalties feel us bad. Studies show that rewards are more likely the reason why we do things. So, every time you finish something, treat yourself. This will help you be motivated.

3. Peer Pressure

Studies show that peer pressure can also give benefit for a person. It shows that it helps kids more than it hurts them. So, surround yourself with people who you want to be with and be motivated.

This tips can help you motivate yourself. But it will still depend on how you manage yourself to make things happen.
