Intrinsic and extrinsic motivation

 Intrinsic motivation refers to the drive to engage in an activity for its own sake, rather than for any external rewards or incentives. It is driven by an individual's own interests, curiosity, and enjoyment of the activity itself.

Extrinsic motivation, on the other hand, refers to the drive to engage in an activity in order to obtain a specific external reward or outcome. This type of motivation is often driven by external factors such as grades, praise, or money.

Both intrinsic and extrinsic motivation play important roles in human behaviour and can influence how we approach and engage in various activities.

Intrinsic motivation is often seen as more sustainable and can lead to a deeper level of engagement and enjoyment in an activity. It can also lead to greater creativity and autonomy, as individuals are motivated to pursue their own interests and goals.

However, extrinsic motivation can also be effective in certain situations. For example, if an individual is struggling to engage in an activity that is important for their well-being, the use of external rewards or incentives may help to increase their motivation and engagement in the activity.

It is important to find a balance between intrinsic and extrinsic motivation in order to maximize enjoyment and achievement in various endeavours. Identifying what motivates an individual and finding ways to tap into their intrinsic motivation can be helpful, while also using extrinsic motivation as a supplement when needed.

How do you keep motivated in our job?

As a professional, staying motivated in one's job can be a challenge. It is important to understand the root cause of why we lose motivation and create strategies to stay motivated. Maintaining motivation at work can be accomplished through setting realistic goals, having an action plan, getting organized, and setting up an incentive system.

The first key step to keeping motivated in one's job is setting realistic goals. It is important to take the time to create a plan of what one hopes to accomplish and set realistic goals that can be attained in an achievable time frame. It is important to take into consideration the amount of time it will take to complete a goal and the resources necessary to do so. Making a list of these goals and displaying them in an easily viewable area can help to maintain focus and dedication to the tasks at hand.

Having an action plan is another effective way to stay motivated in one's job. This plan should include specific steps that are necessary to reach the goals set. By breaking down the larger goals into smaller, more manageable tasks, one is able to stay focused and more easily keep track of what needs to be done. This action plan should also include checkpoints and timelines to ensure that the tasks are being completed promptly.

 Getting organized is another key component of staying motivated in one's job. It is important to organize tasks and projects effectively. This could mean investing in filing systems, utilizing online tools and services, or simply making sure the workspace is neat and orderly. Having an organized workspace can help to keep focus and help prioritize tasks, allowing for more efficient and successful completion of goals.

 Finally, setting up an incentive system is a great way to stay motivated in one's job. This could mean setting rewards for meeting specific goals or for doing extra work. Rewards can also be created for not just professional goals, but personal goals as well. This could include anything from giving yourself a day off from work to taking a vacation, to purchasing a small reward for yourself. The idea is to give yourself something to look forward to, making the tasks at hand seem more rewarding.

Staying motivated in one's job can be a challenge however it is an important part of success. By setting realistic goals, having an action plan, getting organized, and setting up an incentive system, one can maintain motivation at work and ensure the successful completion of tasks.  Through these steps, a professional can ensure they stay motivated and effectively accomplish their goals.

This blog is now about motivation and inspiration

 Dear readers,

I have decided to change the theme of YouBihar. You will remember this website as the Bihar social media network but from now on it will be a website that inspires and motivates.

As human beings, we all have the innate desire to achieve our goals and live fulfilling lives. But let's face it: sometimes, it can be really tough to stay motivated. We may face setbacks, face difficult challenges, or simply feel overwhelmed by the demands of daily life. 

That's why it's so important to cultivate a strong sense of motivation. When we're motivated, we're more likely to take action, persevere through tough times, and ultimately achieve our goals. But how do we stay motivated, especially when the going gets tough? 

Here are a few tips to help you stay motivated and achieve your goals: 

Set clear, achievable goals: When we set goals for ourselves, it gives us something to work towards and helps us stay focused. But it's important to make sure that our goals are clear and achievable. If our goals are too vague or unrealistic, we may lose motivation because we don't know exactly what we're working towards or we may become discouraged when we can't reach them. 

Celebrate small victories: When we're working towards a big goal, it can be easy to get discouraged when we don't see immediate progress. But it's important to remember that progress is often made in small, incremental steps. So celebrate each small victory along the way – it will help keep you motivated and remind you that you're making progress towards your goal. 

Surround yourself with supportive people: Our social network has a huge impact on our motivation. When we're surrounded by supportive, positive people, it can give us the encouragement and motivation we need to keep going. But if we're surrounded by negative, unsupportive people, it can drain our motivation and make it harder to achieve our goals. So make sure you surround yourself with people who will support and encourage you. 

Find your why: Why do you want to achieve your goal? What will it mean for you? When we have a strong sense of why we're working towards something, it can provide us with the motivation and determination we need to keep going, even when the going gets tough. So take some time to think about why you want to achieve your goal – it will help keep you motivated. 

Stay positive: It's important to stay positive, even when things aren't going as planned. When we're positive, we're more likely to stay motivated and keep working towards our goals. So try to stay positive, even in the face of setbacks or challenges. 

Finally staying motivated is essential for achieving our goals and living fulfilling lives. By setting clear, achievable goals, celebrating small victories, surrounding ourselves with supportive people, finding our why, and staying positive, we can stay motivated and achieve our dreams.
