Happy Labor Day! I know that (at least here in the US) today is traditionally a day to take off from work, so this week’s challenge may seem counterintuitive, but stick with me. Ready?
Do something productive today. Even accomplishing something really tiny will make you feel more motivated.
Now, if you’re off work, that’s cool—a load of laundry, finally fixing that squeaky hinge you’ve been meaning to get to, or finishing a great book you’ve been reading all count. Just find a way to do something through to completion, and notice it, and that will help you be more productive all week long! Neat, right?
Of course I’ve got a few links to help you get you motivated, too….
- Got purpose? A longitudinal study suggests it boosts longevity, so if you want to live longer, know what you want to accomplish.
- Whether or not you believe in true romance, this recent Boston Globe story about a couple who reunited after 60 years is guaranteed to make you melt a little.
- Personally, I feel like coffee makes me both happier and more productive, so I loved this little video on how coffee works on your brain.
Have a happier, productive day!
