Not Getting Stuck In A Rut
I found an excellent post on the SitePoint blog dealing with how to keep your business moving forward. As you can imagine, it deals a lot with ways to not getting stuck in the “same ol’, same ol'” mode and finding ways to celebrate your victories while challenging yourself to move forward.
Here are some of their suggestions:
Shake Up Your Goals
Instead of making your work-life one similar project after another, they suggest you take some time to purposely do something you’ve never done before because it can be extremely motivating. Plus, that motivation can continue into your everyday activities.
Take Care Of Yourself
We all hear this all the time but we rarely heed its message. You should schedule time off and away just like you do your working days. Make sure to drop in an occasional surprise holiday when things just seem too much. It will help clear your mind and re-energize your attitude to return to work.
Look At Your Brag Wall
You should keep and update a list of your accomplishments so that you can review them often. Nothing helps your frame of mind more than reminding yourself what you truly are capable of.
Boost Your Adrenaline
Not a huge latte’. Do something either physical or mental that charges you up and then schedule some work time and see if you can’t get a whole lot more done during that time.
A Change Of Scenery
It’s amazing to me how set in our ways we can become. And that extends to how much we get done and our level of creativity. One of the best ways to change your results is to change your workspace. I don’t mean shuffling papers around. Literally, try doing your work from another room, outside or a different country if the opportunity is there. It’s no secret that we don’t feel like the same human out of our comfort zone and this can be very good for our business.
