Wayne Grant – GA Personal Injury and Medical Malpractice Attorney

How can you get motivated to do the things you know you ought to do, whether it is working or working out? First, take a step back and be honest with yourself. Sometimes, your perceived laziness is really your mind or body telling you that you need a break, and it is time to rest.

If you’re rested and you’re still not motivated and you still don’t want to get started on that project or task that you need to complete, try something that works for me. Break it down.

I once had a statistics professor in college that used an expression that helped us get through some complicated statistical analysis – “By the inch, it’s a cinch! By the yard, it’s hard!” So, breakdown the project, tell yourself that you’ll do just do a little at a time. For example, if you’re tackling working out tell yourself, you’ll do 15 minutes instead of 30. Get started! Sometimes, getting started has a way of getting you motivated, and you may even end up doing more. At a minimum, you will have broken the ice and you’ll be on your path to productivity once again.
