    Lightbulb How do you keep yourself motivated?

    Hi,

    Being a webmaster is not an easy task in long run as it can take heavy toll on you mentally and physically. Sitting in front of PC for hours, easy day, every week, every month can certainly cause lot of physical and mental problems, needless to say, loss of motivation.

    So what do you do to keep yourself motivated? I know money and fear are great motivators but still, anything else?

    Let us share some tips.

    -Brandon

    Not for just webmaster, but for all people who should keep in front of computer in a lot of hours. For me, i should in front of com also because i do online business. I'm sometime boring and tired and get no idea..

    For me, to get still motivated is :
    - watch motivation DVD from famoust motivator
    - understand and know, what is my purpose of doing that. Imagine the joy you will get after you doing something in front of computer.

    And to keep my self not boring i usually do working while chatting and drink some coffe, turn on winamp

    Making money online is a hobby for me. Yes, I earn a decent amount of money too, but the thing is I enjoy doing it, so I don't really need motivation. I've met some great people online and it's a pleasure to come online and sort out my blog and talk to my mates.

    Oh, and, as well as that, the good comments I recieve on my blog always motivates me loads. To know what you're doing is appreciated is an awesome feeling

    yes, i same with you. Making money is become my hobby and it's not burden me anymore. It's like a playing game. But don't you think playing game sometime boring and sometime need to rest?

    Anyway, there is one motivation for me :
    Competitor
    If i have competitor, i'm always fire and try to beat him. If there is no competitor, doing this business is feeling so void.

    I keep myself motivated by the people on the internet. seriously! whenever I post something I get reactions. Those keep me motivated, because people are just so awesome and nice , if my content wouldn't be a success I would have quit it very soon.

    Even critique can make you motivated, gaya? Great if yes. It's because common people will feel down and give up when their receive a critique. Keep it like that. That's mean you always receive critique in way to motivated you become more better, that's what you mean, right?

    If that's the case, it's not a very good game

    Nah, only kidding. Yeah, there have been times where I've got a bit bored, but in those cases I just take a day or two off the computer and go out with friends etc. Then by the time I come back, I'm ready to go again.

    but internet business is moved so fast and need concentrate also. So, leaving it 1-2 days i think (my opinion) is become your weakness. If people know about this, they can take a opportunity from this condition.
    In way to get motivated and kill boring but don't want to leave work too long, just reduce your work time (no need to leave it by reduce it)

    I agree that the internet is changing, but 1-2 days won't destroy your blog, and unless something amazing happens you're not going to come back to find everything has changed. A short break can refocus you and your efforts, meaning you'll probably be more successful when you come back.

    I think you'll only really suffer if you are away for a month or so, because by then your site will have lost a lot of traffic without the updates and things wil have changed.
