Act the part

Your behavior may be affecting how you work, so act like a professional would. As New York Times best-selling author A.J. Jacobs once said: “Act your way into a new way of thinking, rather than trying to think your way into a new way of acting.”

What A.J. Jacobs had meant in his quote is try to reinvent yourself in the way you are thinking, rather than figuring out how you should act in your current situation. For instance, if you are a blog writer and you like writing in your blog. Try this: Find a new way to keep your blog posts current, and always coming up with new stories to tell. And another is maybe you might get a little tired of writing about the same thing over, and over again. Try to venture off to another topic without going to far off your subject.
