Remember Why You Do What You Do
"It's just what you have to do," was her first, resigned answer. It clearly came from the part of her that was tired from a hectic day on the road.
Then she went to "the pay is good," "I enjoy the work".... Fill in ten more blanks. Finally, she dug deeper, to the root of what got her up and out the door every morning: Her children.
It was a poignant moment as the woman, in the midst of all the chaos of her busy executive lifestyle, suddenly remembered the real reason she endured the long days, the business trips, and the pains of work: her two daughters. Having realized that, she left the flight in a much better mood than she boarded it.
Point is, when your motivation flags, re-engaging with the root of what drives you is a great way to give yourself new energy. So ask yourself, why do you do what you do? Please share it on the Greenlight Community.
A second tip: Use that energy not just to get through the day, but to find a way to do it all better.
