I stay motivated on the job by knowing that I am building and renovating peoples dreams. The reactions of people to a job well done that has accomplished everything they expected is what keeps my motivation high.

Re: GIVEAWAY: M18 FUEL™ Drywall Screw Gun Compact Kit


I stay motivated on a job because building is my passion. I love taking something that needs improvements and seeing what I can turn it into. Kinda like trying to find the diamond in the rough. I also am motivated by seeing the owners faces when the job is complete and they say that it was worth the time and money and inconvences that they went through..

Re: GIVEAWAY: M18 FUEL™ Drywall Screw Gun Compact Kit


Several things motivate me, not the least of which is the happiness of my family of course but also a couple of memorable phrases I have learned.

This little poster expresses one of those well.

The other is the phrase "and this,too, shall pass", once use by Abraham Lincoln in a speech before becoming President of the U.S. and the greatest man of the 19th century.

Andy.

Lately, my motivation is the money--retirement is in the plans--and building up the nest egg is really needed.

What keeps me motivated:

I actually like doing construction work... well most of it.

I make pretty good money doing it.

I have some really cool tools.

Oh yea... Coffee, lots of coffee.

The need for completion. A lot of times the more difficult the project the more motivated I am to finish it just to know I overcame the difficulties.

Re: GIVEAWAY: M18 FUEL™ Drywall Screw Gun Compact Kit


I stay motivated because I like the autonomy as well as the promise of a reward for a job done well and quickly.

I like being a self-employed business owner as opposed to my old job of teaching middle school.

Although my old job provided a steady salary, I had no autonomy and was treated somewhat like a child. I was told my performance needed to improve.

Now, my salary is commensurate with my performance. At two years in, my business is healthy and growing.

I also like to learn new skills, techniques, and hacks. It also feels good to help people improve their property.
