Productivity can be also achieved by self-motivation. Motivation is the word derived from the word ‘motive’ which means needs, desires, wants or drives within the individuals. It is the process of stimulating people to actions to accomplish the goals. In the work goal context the psychological factors stimulating the people’s behaviour can be – desire for money, success. I couldn’t start motivating myself for a long time. I just procrastinated things in my life. Consequently, I ruined many of my school days and then I screwed with my job. Thanks to the internet where I found many tips that helped me motivate myself and finally do things I wanted and I had to do.

Moreover, I found an amazing site that helps you improve yourself and gets you motivated by completing challenges.
