What is the thing that gets you the most motivated before you go to work?#engineering
Best of luck!
I am motivated to go to work because I love the work I do. I know everyday that the work I do makes an impact in communities all around the world. Your motivation may be a little different depending on your occupation but I am motivated everyday by the people I work with.
Find the fruits of your labor and focus on that. That's enough for me to gain motivation to go to work!
I also enjoy what I do, which helps a lot. I know part of the work that I accomplish provides benefits for others, which keeps me motivated.
I am also motivated from a teamwork aspect. When you work with a team, not only can you learn from each other, but the team is depending on you to show up and contribute, which provides motivation. As I am newer to the workforce than some others at my company, I get the opportunity to learn from their experience and become a more well-rounded employee.
There's also always motivation for being financially secure, as it allows you to enjoy your passions and hobbies outside of work.
It sets you up for professional success, productivity and gives financial security.
It also provides you immense satisfaction to see how you what you have created or improved is utilized by the rest of the world.
Motivation is key to a successful career and there will be days with and without!
For me to make sure I am focused and ready to seize the day, I take a long walk outside. I usually listen to a podcast, and walk in a park. When I come back, I am awake, focused and ready to roll. (I found this critical during COVID!)
Motivations come from anywhere and everywhere: The people you work with, the ones you love, exercising, reading, meditating, etc. Look for the positive energy around you and capture as much of it as you can.
Hope this helps,
Everyone is going to have a different answer, but for me, the biggest motivator is being able to help others. Whether it is helping my team unblock a problem, helping a customer get through an issue, or being part of a larger group to deliver something that others find useful, it is an awesome driver to help keep me motivated.
Best of luck
