In a recent Forbes.com article, Paul B. Brown wrote an article titled “17 Ways To Motivate Yourself To Do Great Things”. We thought we would take some of these and feature them in a 2-part blog series about motivation for today’s employee. Here are some of the first few that we enjoy:
* Necessity – We all have mortgages and bills to pay so we are motivated to do our jobs better in hopes that we are rewarded down the road. Some of us are motivated by money while others are motivated by the opportunity to get ahead. And some are motivated by both.
* Quotes – We all love a good quote from a famous leader, athlete or religious figure. These quotes adorn the walls of our offices, our cubicles and in some cases the dashboard of our cars.
* Support groups – Some of us are motivated by support groups we attend. These groups can offer us practical advice or just by being associated with these groups, we feel more motivated to do better.
