Every hard-working professional knows the journey to success is arduous and overwhelming. It’s full of rejection, too. Even Walt Disney was turned away hundreds of times before someone took him seriously. If you hope to achieve your highest aspirations, we at Ultimate Marketing, LLC warn that you’ll need sufficient motivation to endure the ups and downs you encounter along the way.
Staying motivated certainly isn’t easy, but James Clear proposes a concept we think has substantial merit. The behavioral psychology expert explains, “Scientists have been studying motivation for decades. While there is still much to learn, one of the most consistent findings is that perhaps the best way to stay motivated is to work on tasks of ‘just manageable difficulty.’”
At Ultimate Marketing, LLC, we’re huge fans of this philosophy. Think about it. You’d probably bore quickly of a tennis game with a kindergartener, and just as quickly get discouraged playing against either of the Williams sisters.
According to Clear, “We call this phenomenon The Goldilocks Rule. The Goldilocks Rule states that humans experience peak motivation when working on tasks that are right on the edge of their current abilities. Not too hard. Not too easy. Just right.”
When you find the degree of challenge that motivates you, stick with it and start measuring your progress. We at Ultimate Marketing, LLC guarantee you’ll notice yourself feeling happier and more fulfilled.
