Job-Hunting Motivation

Episode 102 - How to Feel Motivated When Looking for Work

Episode 102 - How to feel motivated when looking for work

Which one of these 3 job hunters are you:

  1. You need to find a corporate job as soon as possible, but you are exhausted and have zero motivation;

  2. You don't know how to get your job search going: every time you start, you quickly give up; or...

  3. You're not sure if you're doing the right things or important things, and this anxiety creeps up on you and affects your motivation.

If you can relate to 1, 2, or 3, then this episode is for you! Let’s get those motivational juices flowing!

I’m going to address 8 tips to help you stay focused and motivated, and I also have a final bonus recommendation at the end that I think is the most important of all:

Tip#1: Treat it as a personal project nor a job hunting project.

Tip#2: Gamify your project: create challenges, rewards, develop and test strategies

Tip#3: Follow a routine and stick to it

Tip#4: Fall back or advance your routine as you get more or less motivated.

Tip#5: Do the hardest things first.

Tip#6: Read books or watch movies and documentaries that inspire you.

Tip#7: Include playtime and rest as part of your routine.

Tip#8: Bookend your days with a gratitude journal.

Bonus Tip: Listen to the episode to find out!
