Many of us have never had to self-motivate like we do at the moment.

With work and school blurring the agenda, this can lead to a feeling of overwhelm and procrastination. As my Grandmother always said:

If we don’t pay attention, procrastination becomes a sneaky snake, creeping its way into all corners of our day.

Reminding ourselves that every day is a fresh start can be a driving factor for some. For others, a schedule on the fridge door may be just the motivation needed.

I’d like to introduce an idea that I learned years ago from my coaching education that keeps me motivated: ‘under promise and over-deliver’. Endless ‘to-do’ lists can cause more frustration than motivation.

With this idea in mind, I’d like to suggest setting ONE goal per week.

Brainstorming the top ten goals you want to achieve is an effective starting point. Then decide on one of those things for the coming week. By keeping the load light, you’ll be able to achieve each of your goals and alleviate the stresses of overachieving! 

This comes back to being Partner with yourself. Self-empathy, compassion, being realistic are ways to actively be kind to yourself, and being kind to yourself is just as important as being kind to others!

Here Mel Robbins talks about focus and control over your thoughts and actions, emotional intelligence AND SELF MONITORING.

It takes courage to do the stuff you KNOW you should be doing! Watch this video as she presents her ‘Five Second Rule’:

Happy Partnering!
