How do you motivate yourself to keep going, even when you do not feel like remaining on task?

How to Answer

As a trades professional, It is essential to remain on task and focused even when your motivation levels may not be high. The interviewer would like to know that you are highly diligent and disciplined. Nobody is wholly motivated 100% of the time, but you should assure the interviewer that you can quickly get yourself back on track.

      1st Answer Example

      "If I do not feel motivated, it is because I am not busy enough. I do not enjoy downtime on the job. I will create jobs for myself or take on extra tasks to keep my motivation levels up."

      2nd Answer Example

      "When I am not feeling completely on task, I will take a quick walk to the nearest coffee shop and grab a round for the crew. I am usually very focused, so if I am feeling foggy, it's just my body telling me to change my pace for a few minutes."

      "While fruit picking in Australia I pushed my body farther than I had before. 10 hour days, 6 days per week, high temperatures, and around 20k every day. My body started to break down after the first week. it was in that second week I had to push myself through the pain and mentally stay focused on my task at hand. I did this by creating connections with other pickers and attacking the task as a team. I also used breathing techniques I learned through mediation to help me through the long periods of continuous picking. this technique has given me the confidence to believe I can push through hard physical tasks."

      Wow! What good training for difficult tasks. What kept you going? Was it simply the challenge to get through it or were you motivated by other forces?
