As an entrepreneur, you will need to maintain very high motivation and inspiration for yourself. Your job will need your motivation and inspiration every day. It is important to have really high motivational and inspirational forces that will force you on your entrepreneurial journey to the final success you want to achieve.
There are many ways to be always a high inspired and motivated entrepreneur, for which I will talk in some of the next posts here on entrepreneurship in a box. But, here, I want to recommend you to find and chose several books that will increase your motivation and inspiration in the next period of time. I don’t tell you to read them all at once, but only to chose and make a plan to read them this month.
1. Step #1: What motivates and inspire you?
Different persons will have different needs when it comes to topics that can motivate them. Because of that, simply start with writing a list about your most important motivational and inspirational factors. This is your starting point.
When you build your list of factors, you will discover that there are many things that have the potential to inspire and motivate you. Because of that, you will need to do some analysis and prioritize different factors from this list.
2. Step #2: Search for different possible books that can motivate or inspire you.
The next step is to spend some time in searching. Start with your private library. Because probably you already have some books that you have not read still it is a good starting point. If you find some of your most important factors from the previous step to be a possible topic in the book that you already have, take it from the shelves and start reading.
Also, if you can’t find something on your bookshelves, search on the internet. Start with Amazon and top sellers for the topics from the first step in this project, or search on Google to find recommendations from other people for the specific subject.
3. Step #3: Chose or buy the three to five books.
The third step is the easiest one, you simply need to pick up three to five titles and take them to be ready for reading if you already have them, or buy them if you don’t have them.
4. Step #4: Make a plan for how you can read the chosen books.
I know that as an entrepreneur you have very little time to spend on reading, but if you are a highly organized person you can schedule several hours daily for your reading tasks.
Today, it is much easier, because with the help of technology you can have several books on your tablet or smartphone, and read them everywhere where you are, especially when you are on boring places as waiting for something.
In this step, it is important to have a plan when you can read already chosen books.
5. Step #5: Start with the implementation of your plan.
Now, when you have your plan, it’s time to start reading. And remember, it is not only about the reading, but it is also more about what you will learn and do after you acquire the new knowledge from the books.
