If you just aren’t feeling it this year (already), don’t despair.
Surely you realize you’re not the first to lose motivation so soon after you made (and probably broke) all (or some) of those new year’s resolutions. Staying motivated is hard work.
According to Fast Company, a British printing company, Parker-Holliday, created a series of posters in the 1920s around a fictional character named Bill Jones, whom “all workers were meant to emulate.” The savvy advice displayed in the style of the progressive Arts and Crafts movement was aimed at “that era’s cubicle-farm set,” but the messages are still relevant today, particularly as it relates to keeping your eye on the prize.
See if Bill Jones can do for you what he did for your parents, grandparents and great-grandparents back in the day (they appear to be aimed at men, but the messages are unisex nonetheless):
