I’m publishing one podcast episode per day in the month of November 2020 as part of a challenge called NaPodPoMo. It stands for National Podcast Post Month. November is National Podcast Post Month, and the goal of the challenge is 30 podcast episodes in 30 days. This is a bite-sized episode, which I’m using to help promote my new online course: Pronounce Drug Names Like a Pro.
This episode is about motivation. I have two teenaged sons. It can be tough to motivate them, but I know what works. My older son has autism and is motivated by car rides and going to the park. If I say, “Put your shoes and socks on, then we can drive to the park,” he’ll put his shoes and socks on all by himself FAST. When I tell him we are going to speech therapy, it’s a different story. He’s not as motivated.
My younger son is motivated by technology. When he deserves a serious punishment, I take his phone away. It doesn’t happen often, but losing his phone really gets his attention. He’s motivated to behave because he wants his phone with him instead of being locked up with me!
What motivates you? For some, it’s avoiding something, like my younger son getting his phone taken away. For others, it’s gaining something, like my older son getting a ride to the park.
What motivates you to learn something? In this episode, I ask, “What is there to gain?” And, “Would you be motivated to avoid something?” Pronouncing drug names can be hard. My online course Pronounce Drug Names Like a Pro teaches brand and generic drug name pronunciations. The focus is on US Adopted Names. Learning how to say drug names correctly can improve safety and save time, plus help you feel confident, avoid criticism, earn trust, and feel less frustrated.
