While spurts from motivating outside sources can certainly cause a spike in our output and results, the only surefire way to reach your goals consistently is to apply consistency to execution of your process – even (and especially) when you’re just not feeling it.
This can be achieved by:
- Grounding yourself in your desired outcome or North Star
- Remembering that even going through the motions moves you forward. If you execute your non-negotiables and prioritize effectively, you will reap the reward of achieving milestones
- Don’t rely on outside sources you cannot control motivating you; more fuel comes from intrinsic motivation
