Living with unprecedented uncertainty can be difficult and take its toll on motivation. However, there are ways you can stay engaged and motivated when circumstances are constantly changing.
Harvard Business Review offers the following strategies to consider:
Be realistic but optimistic. Believe everything is going to work out fine while accepting that getting there might not be easy. Research consistently shows having positive expectations is key to staying motivated when facing setbacks.
Look at the big picture. Looking at the larger meaning or purpose of your actions can inspire you to push forward. Be sure to remember why you do what you do in the first place.
Embrace candor. Constantly and honestly communicate with others on your team to create new norms and habits appropriate for the moment. Seek out the essential everyday conversations about what is and is not working.
