Whiteboard Wednesday Ep. 19: 5 Tips to Stay Motivated at Work

On today’s Whiteboard Wednesday, Randy discusses 5 tips to stay motivated at work. Workplace burnout is a real thing and it’s important to be able to detect burnout and recharge to stay motivated. At Symboliq, we try to tackle this challenge together with creative collaboration, team lunch breaks, and sharing new articles to learn from.

5 Tips to Stay Motivated at Work

1. Look at Your Goals

Take a look back at past goals. See where you are at, how your goals may have changed, and update your goals. It can also be really motivating and empowering to take a look at how far you have come. Give yourself some credit, you’ve grown a lot as a person and employee. Journaling can be a great way to reflect on your goals over time and stay motivated.

2. Lift Up Your Team

If you’re a business owner, it. can be really empowering to share positive affirmations about your team. Helping others become better and understand that they are making a positive impact on your business can really motivate you. Not only will that motivate you but it will motivate them and create an environment/culture that people love to work in. Getting branded apparel for your team is a huge motivator and

3. Take a Break

Sometimes taking a break from your work and focusing on something else or just relaxing can do wonders for your motivation at work. We know, easier said than done. But it’s important to keep you from experiencing workplace burnout. This can be as simple as taking a lunch break with your team or taking a quick walk during the day.

4. Learn Something New

Whether webinars, classes, online articles, or books are your thing, always be learning about your industry! News, updates, watching a how-to video to develop a new skill, all of these things can add up to better end results for yourself and your clients. Try to find new things to share with your team so you can connect with them and learn something new together and help each other stay motivated.

5. Remember Your Why to Stay Motivated

We talk about your “why” a lot at Symboliq because it’s sooo important. When you love what you do, you’ll always be motivated to keep doing great things. Stay true to your goals, your passion, and your reason for why you do what you do. 

So, grab your coffee, take a few minutes to really listen and reflect, and let’s get motivated! Cheers and Happy Wednesday!
