Being Motivated is akin to being hooked to a computer game!

The difference is that a game is designed with all the inducements to pump your adrenalin for staying hooked. Being Motivated too needs same strategies for hooking the mind.

But its complicated since everyone needs different stimuli and so need to devise personalised strategies accordingly.

It might be challenging to figure out how to go about it in one go.

Hang on! There’re always a few baby steps to get started!

1. Figure out 3 P’s — Purpose, Process and Priority spelt out using 3 I’s — Impact, Intelligence and Immediacy in simple steps as follows:
— ‌Define Purpose in terms of the best impact you’ll be creating.
— ‌Outline Process in terms of immediate gains to be realized.
— ‌Specify Priority in terms of intelligence needed to balance trade off between impact and immediate gains.

2. Now, there can be multiple things under each one of the 3 P’s. In other not to be overwhelmed, figure out top most I or top 3 I’s for each P.

3. Once you’re done, measure progress of 3 I’s at periodic intervals along with your motivation level in scale of 1 to 10.

4. You may keep fine tuning the 3 P’s and I’s as you make progress.

Tracking them would do world of good for sustaining your motivation!
