As I explain in the video, it’s alright to have some off days too.

Welcome to another episode of Nick Pratt TV. In this episode, I want to answer a question that I get quite a bit, which is how do you stay motivated when you just don’t feel like doing the work?
This is clearly something that people ask a lot. I have heard this time and time again from people who are struggling with motivation.
Obviously, everybody talks about motivation out there, so I just want to give my spin on it based on books I have read, what I have heard from other leaders and things like that.
First of all, people come up to me and tell me I am very consistent and always emailing my list, making videos, blogging, generating traffic, getting to the top of the leader boards and things like that. How do I be that consistent? How do I have the motivation to do that?
The first thing I will say is that I know myself and a lot of other leaders in this space all have the same motivation issues as other people do. There are some days where I don’t feel like doing something, or the other leaders don’t feel like doing something specifically.
The point is to have more days “on” than “off.” Not every single day needs to go fantastic with very high productivity. If 4 out of 5 days do go like that, then that’s easily enough. Even 3 out of 5 days.
The important thing is not to beat yourself up if you have a day where you’re not as productive or as motivated.
The next thing is have things scheduled in. Before you start any specific day, you should have it completely mapped out.
That schedule should be like your boss. There’s that old saying about being in business. “The good news is you’re the boss, the bad news is you’re the boss.” You don’t have somebody holding you to account. Your schedule should be holding you to account.
Before you go to bed each night, make sure you have the next day mapped out and that you stick to that. That should be your rule book.
Obviously, the other thing is – of all the leaders I know, not all of them have perfect motivation. Everybody struggles with that, but try to have more good days than bad.
