Hello lovelies! Whether you’re tackling a bucket list, writing a book, creating a blogging series, or trying to (eventually) complete any kind of project, you probably know it can be a bit hard to keep the motivation and inspiration alive for a long-term project. I have many different projects I’ve been working on this summer including a new novel, so I thought I’d share a few ideas of mine on how you can stay motivated & inspired while working on and completing it. xx
- Browse Pinterest & make a Pinterest board. Pinterest is literally the online home of creativity and inspiration of every kind. No matter what you need to get done that requires any amount of inspiration or creativity, Pinterest will help. I make Pinterest boards to give me character inspiration for stories, save tips, advice and hacks, and many other things that will help no matter what I’m currently creating.
- Create a motivational playlist. Music is the fuel for my imagination most of the time while I’m writing, whether I am blogging, working on fiction, or anything else. I’ve created several themed playlists to play while working on various tasks and projects and have seen my attitude towards productivity and those projects boosted whenever I play a themed playlist along with my work.
- Keep your work surroundings aesthetically pleasing. Although this one may sound a bit strange, it honestly helps me so much. If I’m trying to concentrate on an online project with my laptop, while my room (or wherever I’m at) is messy and totally disorganized, I find it extremely hard to focus on what I’m supposed to be doing. If my work surroundings look attractive and are even decorated, I feel much more motivated and even inspired to tackle my tasks with energy and creativity.
- Break down your project into bite size goals. I love to create lists for what I need to get done. For a long-term project, making a to-do list of individual steps or parts of the project work helps tons in completing the project, step by step, so I highly recommend doing that. (;
I hope you found these motivational/inspirational tips helpful, & thanks so much for reading!! ❤
