How do you stay motivated to work everyday? Do you find that your excitement when working on long-term projects start to decease after awhile? When you are a team of one, finding way to stay in love with your work is key. After figuring out these techniques your next important step is to make them apart of your routine. The best place to start is learning from other solo entrepreneurs.
Motivational Mondays: Dave Yankowiak of AnywhereMan.com
This week’s video comes from Dave Yankowiak of AnywhereMan.com. He is a husband and father, programmer, runs his own business Lift Development and owner of CommonSpace – a coworking space in Grand Rapids, Minnesota. This motivational video is oldie but goodie from 2009 (around Thanksgiving) but the tips shared are still useful.

My takeaway: Sometimes working on large projects expanding across weeks or even months, you may loose stream at some point. One way to get over that hump is break it down in smaller pieces. Also how and when you schedule each milestone is important. Sprinkle the parts you are really excited about through out and not just in the beginning or at the end. This way you will always have something to look forward to.
