Some days it’s hard to get focused. And stay focused. This can be a struggle for everyone on your team.

It’s understandable: There’s a lot going on, a lot of big, big issues and concerns.

So the first step on this path is to cut yourself a little slack for being … human. But you don’t want it to stop there, right?

The trick to building up your inspiration is to connect with the things you’re already excited about. That’s a primary purpose of a team’s mission, actually, to ground you in something which excites you.

And your team.

Recall what’s important to you – changing society, working together, creating a new market, kicking the competition’s butt, whatever. These are the large and enduring things which drive you to do the hard work.

When a team or entire organization shares that mission, they help build each other up. I might be a bit down today, so maybe you remind me that it’s larger than just how I feel at the moment. And I’ll be glad to do the same for you when you’re lacking the spark.

When it helps me recall an agreement we had months and years ago – when we were excited about the possibilities – I’ll reconnect with my passion and inspiration.

This is the kind of help we need from each other. Right?

I blog regularly on this topic on a site called The Values Based Business.  If you find this article interesting
