At Ultimate Marketing, LLC, our leaders are cognizant of the fact that achieving and maintaining motivation is not an easy thing. Even the most driven among us will have an off day or face a project that is so daunting that it’s difficult to even start. The result is procrastination, and the consequences of that are deadlines missed and goals unmet.
The absolute best way to surmount hurdles like these, according to executives at Ultimate Marketing, LLC, is simply to dig in and do it. That’s easier said than done, of course, so how exactly do you get going on that task or project that’s looming in front of you?
There’s the oft-heard and useful advice of breaking a larger task down into smaller, bite-sized pieces. Facing a monolithic project is considerably more difficult than one that’s split into milestones. It can be achieved with minimal expenditure of effort and time. Completing the individual pieces of this puzzle will yield additional confidence and motivation for continuing on toward tackling future goals.
From time to time, however, there’s that one project that’s just really hard to even think about. Ultimate Marketing, LLC’s leaders suggest a variation on the just-do-it theme for these situations – commit to a short time, even five or 10 minutes, on the project. After that, feel free to walk away for a while. Chances are, you won’t. Even if you do, you will have achieved a little progress toward your goal.
