Pointers for Better Motivation

Want to get more done in 2021? Here are the top tips DJL Dato Jonathan Lim has from his career as a motivational speaker.

Set Clear Boundaries

Identifying the times of day you are willing to commit the most hours of productivity to. It may be that you are a morning person, it may be that you think clearly in the afternoons. A few of us don’t even get going until late at night. Deciding when you are going to put in those hours is a key way you can increase your productivity.

Learn to Priorities

Making sure you put things in order of priority means you will perform better. DJL Dato Jonathan Lim recommends doing the hardest things first, that way they are less likely to take up all your time.

Minimize Distractions

Some people are easily distracted by things like television or radio noises. Isolate yourself somewhere where there are fewer distractions for better productivity.

Review your Week

Regularly reviewing what you have accomplished in a week can act as motivation to do better the following week. Set your reviews for a Friday afternoon and watch your activity levels increase.
