Keeping motivated

As a self employed person, I have these terrible moments sometimes, when I feel completely unmotivated and it is difficult to make myself get on with things.

Because I am in charge of how my time is spent and I have multiple projects on the go right now, I can fall into the trap of ‘dipping in’ to ten different tasks, and finding it hard to focus because I am thinking about all the other things I should be doing.

One thing I found helpful was a book by Peter Jones which shows you (very humorously) how to use a diary and lists to best effect – here it is:

And I have to share this fantastic ‘one stop shop’ article on motivation. It lists all of the ways that we can lose motivation and offers practical solutions.
