Welcome to this week’s MondayMotivator.

Hi %%First_Name%%,

This morning I got a coffee, wandered over the road, and started thinking about today’s Monday Motivator. Several questions popped into my head I thought I would share because I’m sure a lot of people have the same ones.

Why do I turn up at work? Why do I think about clients and campaigns and sending emails? Why? And what do I want from this? Who do I want to help?

The last two are important no matter what position you hold. If you’re not clear what you want from doing something, you’re drifting.

Who do you want to help? That’s important because helping someone get what they want fast tracks you to getting what you want – especially when the relationship / help is structured properly.

That doesn’t mean you’re ruthless about who you help. Helping someone and expecting nothing back is good for you because you always get something in return: you get a warm feeling and you feel good. You feel happy and that little spark of satisfaction can last a long time.

This week, have a think about these questions. Write them on a post-it note and stick them to your screen or fridge. Mull them over and then write the answers down. They might surprise you and help stop the drifting.
