At Lakewood Group we understand that some people fall victim to the Wednesday hump. It’s the middle of the week and you’re too far away from the weekend to be excited but you’re already a few days invested into the week.
We like to keep a positive and upbeat atmosphere here at Lakewood Group but it’s understandable that the energy level naturally declines during the middle of the week. However, we came up with a few ideas as to how you can stay motivated on a Wednesday (and the rest of the week).
Set daily goals
Setting daily goals gives you an incentive to work throughout the day. It’s a lot easier to accomplish short-term goals because they require immediate attention. If you are able to work towards achieving one goal by the end of the day, you’ll spend less time complaining and more time doing. One goal a day gives you an extra purpose of working hard followed by a gratifying feeling of fulfilment.
Do something exciting on your break
Breaking out of your routine of eating the same lunch in the same location with the same people can be hard, but it’s very rewarding. Breaking out of your usual cycle excites you and motivates you to try something new. It’s easy to fall into bad habits and lose focus when you get bored with your routine, so why not mix it up a little bit?
Make plans after work
Making plans after work might seem counterintuitive, but it’s actually a good incentive to work hard. When you know that you have to be somewhere after work, it motivates you to make sure all your work is done to ensure you can attend your plans. Staying busy is scientifically proven to motivate you to excel. So having more plans and getting more work done is a win-win.
Lakewood Group tries its best to keep an energetic office atmosphere but every once in a while someone catches a case of the Wednesdays. Luckily, you have these three tips to help keep you motivated and over the hump.
