Keep your eye on the goal/reward
In a client session last week, we talked about how to keep focused when doing tasks tat may not be your favorite. Procrastination and time management are two areas where if you keep your eye on the goal, or ‘reward’, you are much more likely to complete the task.
In the case of this client, he has a new-born daughter that he would like to spend more time with. Understanding that by getting those trivial yet important tasks done, and spending a little time getting and keeping organized will allow him to spend more time with his daughter. That is his reward. What is your? Positive motivators work a lot more effectively than negative ones.
