As you know, I posted a collection of my most read posts of the decade on Tuesday. Then I heard the debate whether we started a new decade yesterday or if we’ll start a new decade January 1, 2021. I guess it doesn’t make a lot of difference, but it is an interesting debate.
If I were coaching you, I would ask you these questions. If you want to coach yourself and motivate yourself, I encourage you to write or type answers for each question. Some of these questions I found from other experts on motivation.
- What have you learned about your own motivation?
- What are you most passionate about?
- Is there a work discipline you follow each week?
- What changes can you make to your daily routine that will increase your energy level?
- What if anything do you want to get better at doing this year?
- I want you to make an important decision for your work this year that you are committed to achieving. What action steps will you make to achieving it?
- What action can you take today to start implementing that decision?
- What limiting excuses do you make that keeps you from achieving your career goals?
- What actions have you said you will do “some day?”
- What is the primary focus of your life?
- What do you really want to change this year?
- What will be the impact if you don’t make the change?
- If you are able to make the change how will you feel?
- What are your most important strengths that will help you achieve the goal?
- What are some rewards you can give yourself when you make progress?
- Who in your law firm do you think is most motivated?
- What does that lawyer do that causes you to say he or she is most motivated?
- How will you hold yourself accountable for 2020?
