I’m not an outsider. It’s still difficult for me to keep my eyes on the project board or track risks when it’s nice outside. But motivation is key to productivity.
There could be many reasons your motivation and productivity are falling as the days go by.
You may have been working hard on your project for the past few months. Now you are ready to take a break.
You might be gearing yourself up for social events. There tends to be more gatherings during warm weather so there may be weddings, parties and other events that are grabbing your attention.
It might be more difficult to do things if your children are not in school.

It could be something completely different. Your workload as project manager can fluctuate greatly due to project initiation tasks. There are usually quieter times and more busy times. It might feel like always-busy times! !
Why it’s important to stay motivated
Happy days if summer coincides with a quieter time for you. If it doesn’t, then you will need to find motivation somewhere to keep your projects moving.
Your team’s success and the outcome of your project will depend on what you do today. You won’t be able to relax, but if you can, I recommend that you do so. You’ll soon be busy again.

It is possible to manage multiple projects, and many people do it every day. However, you need to think about the schedule and when you will be most busy. Talk to your managers and teams to distribute the work in a way that works.
