The 31-year-old Serb, the world number one, thrashed great rival Rafael Nadal 6-3 6-2 6-3 to claim his 15th major in Sunday's Australian Open final.
"I'm aware that making history in the sport I truly love is something special," he said.
Top seed Djokovic's record seventh men's singles victory in Melbourne moved him outright third ahead of American Pete Sampras in the all-time list, closing in on Federer and Nadal (17).
"Of course it motivates me," he said.
"Playing Grand Slams, the biggest ATP events, is my utmost priority in this season and in seasons to come.
"How many seasons are to come? I don't know. I'm not trying to think too much in advance.
<"I do want to definitely focus myself on continuing to improve my game and maintaining the overall wellbeing that I have - mental, physical, emotional - so I would be able to compete at such a high level for the years to come."Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic
