In this short article I’d like to talk about how to stay motivated when you are bored.
Look, getting bored it’s a normal feeling. Inevitably, many of us go through this boredom, and actually we don’t know how to deal with it.
Motivation goes out the window, you don’t want to do the thing and sometimes you don’t know why you’re feeling that way.
So, I’m here to give you some tips, and shed some light on the reality of motivation, what you need to have instead.
- First thing off, you MUST have an ambitious, keen goal that you want to achieve from the bottom of your heart. THAT’S SO CRITICAL. Otherwise, you’ll end in short term pleasurable tasks, and actually get nowhere.
- Know that motivation is temporary. What you need truly is discipline, and show up no matter what. (That’s why I said that you MUST have a ambitious goal.)
- Third idea, what it feels good right now, it’s going to be a liability tomorrow. Plus, it will come with regrets. Which comes down to developing the ability to delay instant gratification, and do the work because you’ll not regret it in the future.
- Always get involved in active tasks, the ones that are going to come with mountains of benefits like: learning a language, reading books, and spend less time doing passive activities like watching TV, social media, and doing goalless stuff.
What I recommend to do is to make a list of 10-20 things which really excites you a lot and which takes the minimum amount of your time. Make sure they are not very addictive, otherwise you will find yourself spending a lot of time doing those.
