a formula for motivation
A Formula for Motivation

V x E = M

  • V = Values (how important something is to us)
  • E = Expectation (how confident we are about achieving it)
  • M = Motivation (how motivated we are when you multiple V and E)
example of v x e m
Example of V x E = M
  • Joe’s goal is to earn an “A” in his English class
  • Joe want’s to become a published author, so his goal has high value, a 10
  • Joe always has done well in writing course, so his expectation of success is also 10
  • Joe’s formula:

V x E = M

10 x 10 = 100

  • Clearly, his motivation is high
  • Dive Deeper: What if it was a science class? Science is not Joe’s favorite subject.
how to set a goal using dapps
How to Set a Goal Using DAPPS
  • To be truly motivating, a goal needs 5 qualities
  • “DAPPS” is an acronym:
    • Dated
    • Achievable
    • Personal
    • Positive
    • Specific
dated
Dated
  • Motivating goals have specific deadlines
  • Short term goals are a few months or less
  • Long term goals are usually more than a year
  • As your deadline approaches, your motivation typically increases
  • If you don’t meet your deadline, you have opportunity to review and create a new plan
  • Without a deadline, you could stretch your pursuit of a goal and may not reach it
achievable
Achievable
  • Motivating goals are challenging but realistic
  • Example:
    • Getting ready for a marathon:
      • Practice one week before by running around the block
      • Practice one year before with someone who has done it
  • Set your limit… not too high and not too low
  • Ask yourself: “Is achieving this goal at least 50% believable to me?” Or “Can this be done?”
personal

  • Motivating goals are your goals, not someone else’s
  • Ask yourself if this goal contribute to your personal desire/dream

    • Negative: I’m not going to fail this class
    • Positive: I’m going to earn at least a B in this class
    • Negative: I will stop being late to classes
    • Positive: I will arrive early to every class
    • Negative: I will stop eating junk food
    • Positive: I will start eating healthy food

    • Good: My goal is to play harder on the basketball court
