When you do the same thing over and over again it can get old and you can become very bored and unmotivated. This has happened to me multiple times with ThinkComputers. I spend my days either making unboxing videos, taking product photos or writing reviews. This is not bad at all, but doing it day after day can get to anyone. That is why I try and start a new project or add features to ThinkComputers to stay motivated and upbeat.
Starting a New Project
Nothing gets me more excited than starting a new project. It is taking that idea you had and turning it in to something real. If it is a website I get excited about the name, the design, the content and how I am going to market it. It sort of gives your mind a break from the normal and gets you thinking about other things. New projects that I have started include this blog and I Hate My Roommate. You want to keep in mind that new projects don’t replace your current workload, they motivate you to get it done so you can work on the new project.
Some people may not have the freedom to start a new company or website. Why not make your current company or website better? This not only is going to get you motivated, but I’m sure your users will appreciate it. There are so many things you can add to a website to make it better. For ThinkComputers some of the new features that we have added lately are our Weekly E-mail Newsletter and our Forums. Getting these things setup kept my mind off my daily tasks and I was really excited to get them launched.
If you are feeling unmotivated or just one day is dragging into the other why not try this. Let me know if it has helped you out!
