If your reason for wishing to be more productive is a shallow one that doesn’t serve a higher purpose in your life, there is a good chance that it will just cease to motivate you down the line allowing your productivity to fall by the wayside quickly.
You need to take the time to consider what is driving your desire for productivity. If you need money to support your family, then the love you have for your family, a strong sense of duty, and sheer determination might be your driving factors. Or, perhaps you have found yourself in poverty, and your drive is the desire to improve your situation and yourself.
You need to determine what drives you on a deeper level and understand why you are working so hard. It is essential that you make sure that you know what you are striving to achieve. Only you know what drives you. Only you know what will make you wake up early and work hard. Only you know why you need to be more productive.
It doesn’t matter what you tell other people. It doesn’t even matter if it is true or not. You may tell people what they expect to hear, but it may not be your real reason. It does matter what you tell yourself.
You always want to be honest with yourself because your productivity will fall as quickly as it has risen. Continue to remind yourself why you are working so hard, and keep it in your heart and in your mind. If you can do this, then you are already half-way there.
Unfortunately, there isn’t a magic pill that you can take to fix your lack of productivity. It will take time and hard work to change how you work and before you see a permanent boost in your productivity.
