Stressed, depressed and still well dressed, but not motivated enough to show up at work. If that’s what defines your daily routine, Thomas Salzano, a New Jersey-based hairstylist, traveler, and blogger has the right solution for you. Salzano is a man who has been working in the hair industry for more than a decade, and believes it or not, he has walked more than a couple of miles in your shoes.
Staying motivated at work doesn’t come easy, but that’s what makes it even more so important. An unmotivated person is like a bad apple, the one that rots the vibes of the whole office. Here’s how you can stay motivated, brought to you by Thomas Salzano:
Consider the Impact: If Thomas didn’t consider his motivation’s impact on his co-workers, his salon wouldn’t have become what it is today. His idea is simple: your actions reflect on your peers. Remember, when you are in a position to bring the change, you should. Thomas believes we are always capable of doing it.
Focus on One Task at a Time: Planning for the day is important, but don’t make big chunks, says Thomas. He recommends creating small milestones and treating yourself with a glass of water after each milestone. Hydration brings more benefits than one can possibly imagine.
Comfort Zone is an Enemy, Chuck it: No big feat was ever achieved while living in one’s comfort zone. The mere thought of whether you can do it or not gives an adrenaline rush that one would need. Do things you though you couldn’t, and don’t be afraid to fail.
Fake It Till You Make It: the best thing about faking motivation is that gradually, you actually start feeling motivated. Our brain is tuned in a complex yet wonderful way. Motivation soon becomes a habit and you get things done with a smile.
Be Grateful: Never underestimate the power of two words, “Thank You”. Gratitude has the power to motivate the helper as well as the helped one. Be generous with it, even for small favors, especially for small favors.
