Happy Monday! I wanted to write briefly about articles you can read about motivation that could help you find a new way of doing things. If you’re like me, you don’t like being an automaton. You like shaking things up from time-to-time. If this describes you, high-five! You and I are in alignment.
What are some good sources for articles on motivation? I use two. The first is FlipBoard. It is an app you can download to your phone, and it is a website. It is free. You simply create an account, select some preferences, and you’re off to the races. The second is Pocket. Pocket is free, and it collects articles from all around the web. It doesn’t categorize like FlipBoard, but it does allow you to save articles you enjoy, so you can return to them later. Both FlipBoard and Pocket also allow you to share great articles with your social networks.
Here’s an article I found that provided some great ideas for improving your productivity for the week. It is titled: 5 Tips for a More Productive Work Week. It took me less than a minute to find. Here are the main tenets of the article.
- Make a Morning Routine That Guides You
- Save Up Your Busywork
- Lean on a Tomato for Motivation
- Take Meetings During Your Slump Time
- Throw Out Any Productivity Tip That Doesn’t Work for You
I do most of the things suggested by this article already. You may not do these things already and may be interested in adapting some things to your schedule. This is why I read about motivation, productivity, and efficiency articles each week. It is because I never know when the next great idea will be shared by someone that I can introduce into my unique workflow.
I am always looking for the next hack or improvement I can add to my daily workflow. Try Flipboard or Pocket. You won’t be disappointed. Here are the links for both of these services:
I have used both of these article sources for years. I highly recommend them. Sometimes I get lucky and find a great article in the news. I use Google News. You may like your local paper or Apple News or some other news service. Whichever one you use, scan through it and see if there is anything interesting to you. You never know!
Here is my schedule for the week:
Monday – Sunday
- Blog Post Daily
- Write Section of my Book Daily
- Exercise Daily
- Spiritual Exercise/Meditation Daily
- Read a Chapter of a book Daily
