Have my company for the past 8 or nine years now, we have seen a lot of ups and quite a few down times. The line of work seems very monotonous especially the book work section of it.. Also working in partnerships are very difficult just ask any wise adult what they think about partnerships and they'll just laugh and say they never work...well guess what they can work. however it is very difficult, and the biggest thing is for muy communicion between partners and a common respect for change. We all lose motivation over time..it is just a natural thing. The boys and i have learned a couple of skills that we use to stay motivated. You may hear advice on how to stay motivated or give advice but the thing to remember is motivation is individualized and you have to find the key ingredients that work for you. In our case we set different challenges among ourselves...ie we will take turns with new clients and have a competition as to who can actually get a client and pursue with his or her goals..this is done in a months period and due to us all being college students the winner gets to have two days off and the tab at the bar picked up for him for two nights. Also during the day we always take time to play a game or we bring things to break, sometimes we bring shotguns and go to a range during lunch and shoot away our stress...trust me this works. What we do now and in our company obviously is not oppropriet for future jobs or even future prospects, but the point is you have to adapt and find out what works best for your situation and time to stay motivated.

Hi Jason - You stated, "We all lose motivation over time..it is just a natural thing." I like that you accept this fact and, right away, look for individualized solutions based your co-workers/partners' unique needs. Thanks for sharing the creative, playful ways that work for your team to relieve stress. As you mentioned, "the point is you have to adapt and find out what works best for your situation." Absolutely. Well said.
I agree that each of us has our own personal motivation. The one that works for you may not necessarily work for others. But it was a nice thing of you to help each other stay motivated. It is sometimes with the help of our friends or people close to us that we get motivated or we find what motivates us.
It is important that we know what motivates us in life. Once we know our personal motivation, it would be easier for us to stay motivated. It is actually motivating sometimes if you do it with friends or some people close to you.
I believe partnership could work if you just have open communication about your business. Well, it means honesty and good communication skills. You must both communicate effectively so that you can avoid misunderstandings or conflicts.
Effective communication helps strengthen relationships and achieve your goals as well. It helps you understand each other and it will also help you solve conflicts. Problems can be solved if you talk about it clearly and effectively.
You have great ways in making yourself motivated. It is really important especially in the midst of stress. You need to be positive all the time so that you won't get influenced easily by the negative things around you and the negative things that happens in you, too.
The sedona method is a very effective way to achieve positivity through emotional wellness. It helps you to feel great and stay motivated all the time.
This is an okay list, Hugo pretty much chose the entire list of good mexican players. unfortunately for Mexico.. It lacks the depth to compete with the likes of Brazil or Argentina in Copa America.. but they should beat the US in the Gold Cup..
F*ckin’ awesome issues here. I am very satisfied to look your post. Thank you so much and i'm having a look ahead to contact you. Will you kindly drop me a e-mail?
