When I feel uninspired by my work, I remind myself that my work is important. That reminder puts me back at a place to achieve my goals.
I encourage myself to keep working by identifying a daily reward. Knowing that I have a treat coming my way gives me the drive to keep working. I believe wholeheartedly in rewards for performance.
Sometimes, my studies seem overwhelming and watching television is more appealing. But I reassure myself that uninterrupted leisure time is mine whenever I complete my studies.
At the end of the day, when my tasks are complete, it is a good feeling to both achieve a goal and have a reward. My rewards come in various forms because
many different things make me happy. When the rewards are meaningful enough, I am motivated to work towards them.
Using a system of rewards allows me to develop good habits over time. When I build a rhythm, it is easy to continue even without the added motivation of a reward.
Today, my achievements are worth the effort because I reward myself. I continue to believe that positive gestures encourage me to work hard, smart, and quickly.
