What do you do or what will you suggest others do to show up at work every day? Tell us now!
Pure, unadulterated lust.
This is what motivates me to show up and write articles that turn people’s minds inside out. I lust after perspectives that will blow people away because of something I said that never occurred to them before.
To pull this off, I need to stay on my toes by reading sites like LifeHack.org so that I keep my perspective fresh. I love the challenge of coming up with material that is unique. In today’s blogging world, uniqueness is hard to come by, so I study and think, then study some more.
To succeed in the world of personal development, all of the above is an absolute must. You need something different and, yes, I do lust after it.
Simply those tasks waiting for me to juggle them all throughout the day, without letting any of them slipped through my hands. I enjoy every single detail of what I’m doing, while making sure all things should be done at the end of the day. I don’t consider it mundane, never, even if somebody says you do the same things every day. Actually I’m not. I’m blessed that I have a work, just with that in mind every little thing seems to brighten up, motivating me to show up and get that work done.
You know that amazing feeling on the weekends when you wake up on your own, without an alarm, refreshed and ready to tackle the day? I know I’m being effective when I’ve gotten enough sleep to not need an alarm clock on the weekdays, because that means I got enough done at work to end at a reasonable enough time to a) exercise, b) eat an early dinner, and c) unplug and wind down for the night.
That “weekend wake-up” I love and crave so much starts with being productive and effective at work. If I can attack my workday with a strong sense of urgency, I unlock the possibility of leveling up my after-work life and setting myself up for an amazing morning… which in turn sets me up for another productive workday.
With a little momentum, and successive maximally effective workdays, I can have a blissful weekend in which I savor quality time with friends and family and enjoy complete freedom from work and my digital devices.
Freedom of time and leisure — that’s what I play for.
