Have a clear picture of why you do what you do
After a really tough day, when your energy levels are in your boots, it’s sometimes helpful to step back and remind yourself of your motivations for why you do what you do. The easiest way to increase your motivation for something is to come up with as many reasons why.
Take 5 minutes out to come up with at least 3 authentic reasons why you choose to do the job that you do and record them somewhere. It could be:
- To make a difference to patients.
- The money is good.
- Its 5 minutes from home.
- It’s a good stepping stone to your next role/promotion.
So, on the toughest of days when that burden is even heavier and your energy levels are low, take a look at that note that reminds you of why you do what you do.
