Our lives have become increasingly complex. To help us get more done, we have more ways to communicate than ever before: face-to-face, phone, email, instant messaging, twitter, blogging, etc. We have more tools to get more done, but our energy is diminished after being pulled in a million directions. To get more done, why not flex your focusing muscle . . .
Do you find yourself needing to be offered the chance to win vacations, automobiles, cash or prizes in order to become motivated? Or do you find receiving threats of being fired more effective? Which ever you choose, both are legitimate motivators. One is known as a "toward" motivator; meaning, to work toward something, such as a new automobile or a trip to Europe. The other is known as an "away" motivator; meaning, to work away from something, such as debt or death.
