MAINTAINING MOTIVATION WHEN WORKING
home business is GREAT! As you know, I
simply love working from home. However, there are
days when I just want to lay on the couch, turn on
the TV and laze around. So how do you stop yourself
from doing that? How do you stay motivated?
the answers to this are different for each
person and each personality type. What keeps me
moving is the tremendous amount of things I have to
accomplish in a week. I make a list every single day
of all the things I have to do. I know, that if I
didn’t keep up with the list, by Friday I would be so
overwhelmed with projects and work, I would kick myself for not doing
what I should have been doing to keep up with my business.
do” lists are a constant, in your face kind
of reminder that keep you on track. For me, there is
no time at all for daytime television. I barely watch
3 hours per week, and then it’s late night Seinfeld…
The daily “to do” list keeps me motivated.
other things can you do to stay motivated?
Here are some things I thought of:
Break up your day into segments. Plan your day.
Give yourself a proper lunch break. This will give you
a routine and give you something to look forward to.
Reward yourself for keeping up with your medical transcription. Post
inspiring quotes and verses in your office area. Give yourself a
proper work time schedule and try to stick with it. Get some
exercise. Laugh often.

ever go to the stores anymore..
