Why do you do what you do?

Why do you do what you do?


Simple question, right?

Yet we are so caught up in the daily grind and other urgent tasks that we forget to pause and enquire.

This week, as we are close to wrapping up the year, I invite you to observe the ‘why’ behind what you do.


What ‘demotivated’ looks like for you?


For some, it’s feeling fatigued and depleted.

Others go into procrastination and call it being lazy.

Or it can be feeling angry at the whole world and being cynical at work.

We each have our own way of ‘I cannot be bothered anymore’ – what is yours?

Where do you feel you are missing out?


What is missing in your career?

More challenges, better opportunities, validation, feedback, paycheck, a sense of passion?

What is missing in your life?

More personal time, family time, travel, learning?

What can you do today to get yourself one step closer?

I help my executive clients find their own version of balance and meaning in their hectic lives.  If you want to get more out of your life, contact me at mayda@maydapoccoaching.com for a free consultation.

Finding your motivation back….


Ugh…when nothing wants to work your way, and everything seems to be dull and pointless…cannot be bothered…yep…we all have those moments.

What to do?

Well, I can tell you to go back to your drawing board and start writing goals and small steps to get you started.

This works.

But sometimes, even this is too much to ask, so here is a little trick!

Find something that you do well, and it can be the smallest tiniest most insignificant thing ever, the important part is for you to find something that fires the energy up in you and gets you going.

An example for me, go to your to-do list, yes, that same thing that is overwhelming you, and find an item on it that would take you little effort to accomplish…and do it….and then to check it off your to-do-list.   

And on to the next low hanging fruit…

how does that make you feel? More energized?

That’s because most of us do need to feel a sense of achievement and some energy flowing.

The more victories we build, the more self-confidence and motivation we will have.

How do you get yourself out of a rut?
