Finding Motivation To Do A Good Job At Work




Featured Image VIA

Motivation is the key to success. It’s what keeps us going when things get tough, and it’s what allows us to find new ways to do our jobs when we’re bored with them. Without motivation, we would just sit around all day doing nothing. There are many ways to motivate yourself at work, but sometimes you need a little help getting started—and that’s what this post is here for!

Reflect On What Motivates You

As you think about these things, you might find that there’s a difference between what motivates you and how motivated you feel. For example, it’s possible to be motivated by the possibility of getting a raise or promotion but not feel like doing all the hard work required to get one. Or perhaps you want to do well at work because it gives your life more structure and meaning, but when push comes to shove and deadlines loom large in front of you, your motivation is nowhere in sight.

We all have different motivations—maybe some are intrinsic while others are extrinsic; maybe they’re long term while others are short term—but in order to get yourself into gear at work every day, it helps if those motivations align with one another. If they don’t align too closely, though (as is often the case), then start working on changing some things so that they do align with each other better!

Find New Ways To Be Motivated When You’re Stuck In A Rut

If you find yourself unable to work at the level of output that your job requires, it’s likely that your motivation has taken a hit. This can happen for many reasons and sometimes it just comes down to needing a change of pace. If you’re working on something that doesn’t interest you, or if you’re doing tasks that don’t challenge or stimulate you, then it may be time for a new project.

If you really can’t stand the sight of your job anymore, then maybe it’s time for a career change. There are times when we need to make big changes in our lives in order to improve them and live happier lives; this is one of those times!

Use Technology To Enhance Your Work Experience

We’re all busy, so we have to maximize our time. Here are ways to use technology to help you get the job done and be more productive:

  • Use a virtual assistant. A virtual assistant can help you with emails, scheduling meetings and appointments, creating documents (like resumes), and even personal tasks like shopping or cleaning your house! A great one is called Fancy Hands. It only costs $30 per month—that’s less than two lattes at Starbucks!
  • Use cloud-based apps for productivity. Apps like Wunderlist allow you to create lists of things to do in one place that’s accessible from any device—your phone, tablet or laptop computer. This helps keep you organized so that nothing falls through the cracks when it comes time for prioritizing what needs doing first versus last on your list; it also means no forgetting an important task like making dinner reservations because someone else has already taken care of it through their own app usage too!

Create A Support System

In order to find the motivation to do a good job at work, you’ll want to create a support system. This can be done in many ways. For example, you can talk to someone who has been in your position before, or even ask for help when you need it. You might also choose to get a mentor or coach and/or therapist to help figure out what motivates you to do a good job and how best to achieve your goals.

Make Your Work Environment Comfortable

  • Make sure you have a comfortable chair and desk. You want to be able to sit for long periods of time without getting a sore back or neck.
  • Ensure that the temperature is agreeable. If it’s too hot or cold in the office, your work performance will suffer as you try to compensate for the discomfort.*
  • Ensure that there is enough light around your workspace. Natural sunlight is best, but artificial lights are fine too if they are bright enough (and use florescent bulbs instead of incandescent).
  • Make sure that your work surface has enough room on it for all of your stuff. Keep things like pens and paperclips close at hand so as not to waste time searching through drawers when they’re needed immediately.*

At The End Of The Day, It Doesn’t Matter What Your Job Is; If You Are Not Comfortable, It’s Time For A Change

I think it’s important to be comfortable in your job. If you’re not, it’s time for a change. There are many ways to find motivation at work when you’re stuck in a rut, but sometimes the best way is simply knowing that you can do something better than what you’re doing now.

If technology has been helpful for me and my career, I’m sure it could help others as well. You could use apps like Trello or Slack to enhance your work experience and make sure that everything gets done on time without sacrificing quality.


In the end, it’s up to you to find what motivates you. But if you have trouble getting started, try some of these tips. They’ll help get you going in no time!
