Social psychologists have known for decades that people are most motivated to work hard when others are watching. For one thing, they want to impress others with their performance, so try harder. When others watch, they feel they are being magnified, which fuels their motivation.
When employees are in a zone, it can be very empowering to watch. You can explore with such passion that it captures your attention, like being caught in a dance when nobody is watching. You can watch a child dance and not care or judge them because their work comes from within, which is exactly what scares most of us adults.
With the first two elements, which promote a safe environment and a willingness to take risks, the little girl appears and tries her hand at a foot dance. She’s one of the most experienced dancers at the wedding.
We are one person in private and another in public. For fear of other people’s judgments and opinions, many of us retreat to things that are private and that no one else can see. When you work like no one is watching, everyone watches our work, but we are afraid to make a mistake, so we are nervous and make more mistakes.
What I trust most in life is that treating people with words and choosing points will make their lives easier and better. I believe that the more you put people in relationships, the more they reflect you.
One of the hardest things for me is to be the type of person who doesn’t have unkind words for strangers on-screen or rejections from people who know me. That way, I’m not naive about what people will like.
For me, the work surrounded by motivated people inspires me to make a home run. As I have already mentioned, the working environment in a co-working space urges me to crush it.
It means working on something that you are passionate about and love what you do. Whether you work at a workplace or are an entrepreneur, do what you do best.
I think that working from home is not just about a traditional boss with two desks and a performance review once a year. Regardless of whether you are self-employed or not, my conclusion is that you never know who is watching and what the future holds.
One of the most surprising factors in the heaviest load on the drive is the lack of other people watching you at work. Other people at work don’t watch me and I don’t want to be the person watching videos or checking my social media accounts while I’m drifting around.
In one study, the symbol for “clock” in the eye, a signal that their screen was being recorded, led people to think they were working alone. In another study, when others watched, people felt they were working on a math task when they were alone.
When the soul hurts, when one hears a voice, one becomes more passionate than when no one is watching. The moment is defined by what we create when no one is watching.
The degree of success you achieve is determined by the work you do when no one is watching. When you reach a standard of excellence that makes the heart smile, you become disciplined even when no one is watching.
As much as we like to believe that we are good people, kind and altruistic, it is not easy, and life challenges us all. Doing the right thing often requires admitting your own mistakes and mistakes.
Some people think that reputation is the same as integrity, but they are two different things. Integrity is when you are observed, and integrity does the right thing every time, even if it is to your detriment.
To be able to stay motivated when nobody is watching is to do something that has a following. I don’t know if I would say people are rejected or don’t know what they’re doing.
For example, I finish my work on Thursday and take a Friday off to enjoy myself. Even if I don’t feel like doing anything else, a schedule motivates me to do something. As a freelancer doing my job, I cannot advise or guide anyone else on how to motivate me. I just do it every day.
That way I can tick off three or four tasks the next day and then move on to something else. You can work from home or work one or two days in a local café or co-working space.
Many people find it difficult to get their work done when they are at home because the office focuses on video conferencing and email exchange. Through a separate but interconnected environment, employees can get away from their day-to-day workplaces and enable growth and innovation.
