Here are 3 ways to boost your momentum to finish the year strong.
1) Mix things up - - to stretch yourself and re-inspire you.
Rather than saving it for the afternoon, try working on a dreaded project, your resume/cover letters, your expense report, etc. in the morning when your energy is high. Ask a friend for different music recommendations, podcasts, Instagram accounts to follow.
2) Compete in a friendly way. Compete with yourself, a friend, co-worker, or even a kitchen timer to energize the project and motivate yourself. And little rewards- - a nap, music break, or coffee- - can make the competition more exciting.
3) Adjust (the size of) your goals. Hidden within your overall goal there are lots of smaller goals. Break these into quick projects and get them done: Update one section of your LinkedIn profile; send several quick emails; finalize a project and close it out. Big goals and big To Do lists are overwhelming, so break them into parts and see how much you can accomplish.
Start 2016 with a future-focus by ending the year strong.
