Motivation Part 1# or moving the needle…

As we know from psychology, motivation is not β€œjust there” and then causes activity, but just the other way round. Taking action CREATES motivation! With β€œmoving the needle’, I want to say: sometimes, motivation develops a life of its own with unexpected, positive results… πŸ™‚ See also my “Lifestyle Definition”

I’ve developed this habit of moving at least 30 minutes per day, in summer outside, in winter in a gym. Always prior to work, early in the morning.

As a business guy, of course I had to set a target for 2019 and break it down into quarters and months… πŸ˜‰
In January I was able to over-achieve my monthly target as I really wanted to have a head start into 2019… πŸ™‚

Last Saturday, Feb 23rd, my thinking was: 90% of my “already stretched monthly target” by Monday would be something! πŸ™‚

To “keep the opportunity alive” I went Sunday morning as well and achieved the 90% by Monday, HURRAY πŸ™‚

BUT: there was another challenge (or motivation πŸ™‚ ): February is three days shorter than January, but hey, wouldn’t it be super cool to exceed January anyway? πŸ˜‰

The picture above was taken on the way to the gym on Tuesday and was definitely motivating, so I did more than my minimum that day…

This morning , I achieved MORE than the January result and with THREE DAYS LESS, Yes!… πŸ™‚

AND, as a Digital Executive I’m so used to thinking BIG πŸ™‚ : 33% of yearly target in Q1 would definitely be something….We’ll see…

Stay tuned….
