This article is inspired by a book I read recently, called “The Motivation Hacker” by Nick Winter.

In this book, Nick talks about how to hack motivation. No surprises there!

However, Nick goes a little further than the basic ‘hacks’ you see so often on Social Media. Instead, he goes in-depth on where motivation actually comes from in the first place, and how you can leverage those things to inevitably increase your levels of motivation towards a particular task(s).

Also, before we get further into the article, I wanted to confess something. This is more of a detailed book review than a crash course. I’d highly recommend grabbing the book itself if you want even more on this topic. …

I have watched many of these videos, and read many of the blog posts, in hopes of finding the perfect concoction of productivity hacks that propel me to new heights in my entrepreneurial ventures.

Instead, what I’ve found is that all of these videos and blog posts ultimately boil down to the exact same thing. …

Hey Internet,

Since I just joined Medium, I thought I’d kick things off with a brief introduction. Although, I must admit, it does feel a bit like introducing myself to a room full of people who are all facing away from me and are wearing blindfolds and earmuffs. But anyway, here it goes…

My name is Jonah and I’m currently 21 years old. I run a couple of different businesses and live in the UK. I’m the son of a preacher man (literally), have moved houses countless times (14 or 15 I think?), been to loads of different schools (always been the new kid) and ultimately dropped out of education altogether.
