Ep #109: How to Access Sustainable Motivation

The Joyful Practice for Women Lawyers with Paula Price | How to Access Sustainable Motivation

We all resonate with a lack of motivation at one point or another, whether that’s professionally or outside of work. You’ve probably done your own research on how to find motivation and tried common strategies like setting smaller goals, taking breaks, or keeping to a regular schedule. If these tips haven’t proven to be effective for you, you’re in the right place.


We often unconsciously engage in and become reliant on sources of motivation that simply aren’t sustainable. Maybe you think you need passion to sustain you through a task, depend on fear to fuel you, or perhaps you’re hooked on feeling busy to stay motivated. These go-to strategies might provide short spurts of motivation, but the reality is they aren’t long-lasting.


Join me on this episode as I explore concrete tools and strategies for accessing sustainable motivation. You’ll hear why certain sources of motivation aren’t sustainable, how to become watchful of strategies that hold you back, what happens when you develop sustainable motivation, and my process for customizing your own unique motivation profile.
