Jam Session

How Do You Stay Motivated Over a Longer Period of Time?

IMG_3346How do you stay motivated not just for days or weeks, but for month and years?

Long enough to develop your craft, build a legacy-worthy body of work and stay deeply engaged and driven along the way. In an earlier episode, I mentioned something that I’ve since been asked about many times; the difference between being pulled from in front and being pushed from behind.

Is that just about passion and purpose? Is it about grit? Do you just need to buck up and persevere? Be persistent? Or is long-term motivation really about something else?

While conventional wisdom tells you that if you love what you do, you won’t work a day in your life, we all know that logic doesn’t often cut it. Maybe for a single, short-term pursuit. Or something with a fairly limited duration. But sustained motivation, motivation that fuels action for years or decades, that’s about something else. Staying motivated and taking action involves going a few steps further. That’s what I’m talking about in today’s episode.

In today’s Jam Session we unpack a formula that helps to cultivate long-term, sustained motivation and also reframes motivation’s role in building something great. As always, you can listen to the audio below. Or, hey, even better, never miss an episode!
