Functioning and Motivation

by Antoine Silva
(Chicago, IL, USA)

I have always found it difficult to be properly motivated when pursuing a goal or working on a project on which I have little interest. How can one man be expected to get so much work done, day after day? Well, sometimes all it takes is a dedication to changing your lifestyle. Just switching up some of your old, bad habits can make it easier than ever to create positive changes in your overall well being and level of daily motivation.

I have always been a coffee drinker, but after reading about these daily motivation tips, I am planning to give up on coffee, energy drinks like Red Bull or Monster, and any other chemical that may make me think I have altered the way I think and work for the better. The truth is, of course, that any alterations in my functioning are actually beneficial, as these are stimulants that create anxiety and make it difficult to focus, not to mention the impossibility of tapping into your own natural creative spirit when you are under the influence.

Another helpful tip would be thinking! It seems simple, but considering all the time I spend every day getting nothing productive done or letting my mind wander when I'm trying to get work done, a constant reminder to just think would be incredibly beneficial. This would promote positive learning habits, would be great exercise for the brain, and would keep me on task or at least productive in some way. A lazy, out of shape brain is one that never thinks!
