  1. Stay motivated in Life and Work

         One of the ways in which one can stay motivated in life and work is by striking a balance when setting up a challenge, research has it that humans experience peak motivation when working on tasks that are in the middle of their current abilities. Not too bad, not too easy, just right. When you begin a new habit, it’s important to keep the challenge as easy as possible so you can master it against the odds. Once a habit has been mastered, however, it’s important to continue progressively to advance in bits. For instance, if you are learning Frontend web development as a beginner you are encouraged to start with HTML because it is quite beginner-friendly, progressively you move to CSS and thereafter JavaScript and in the long run, you might even pick up a framework to learn. Improvement requires a delicate balance. You need to regularly search for challenges that push you to your edge while continuing to make enough progress to stay motivated. 

  1. Make adjustments. “Step outside your comfort zone” 

          Reflection and review enable long-term Improvement and help one to make adjustments where necessary, it makes you aware of your flaws and helps you consider possible paths for improvement. Reflection and review ensure that you spend your time on the right things and make corrections whenever necessary. Making adjustments comes at a cost, which means you step outside your comfort zone, in order to record groundbreaking success. At first, each repetition develops fluency, skill and speed. But then as you improve, you need to make adjustments and be sensitive to feedback. If you do not make adjustments you assume you’re getting better because you’re gaining experience. In reality, you merely reinforce your current habits “not improving them”. However, if you want to maximize your potential and achieve elite levels of performance, you need a more nuanced approach. You can’t repeat the same things blindly and expect to become exceptional.

You have to believe in where you’re going before anyone else can.
