What's Your Motivation?

Why is it so hard to get motivated some days? I'm having one of those off-days where finding the energy and motivation to get anything done is much more than I can handle.

I have deadlines and plenty of work, but none of them are immediate enough to cause me to panic, so I'm loafing. Tomorrow, when things start coming due and I'm down to the last hours to get things done, I'll be kicking myself as I scramble to finish up. Why am I sitting here doing nothing?

How do you deal with those days where nothing seems to come easy and you know that it is going to come back to haunt you later? I need some motivation or I'll be joining the baby for a nap in a few minutes...


This probably isn't the most helpful advice but - go for the nap! That is exactly where I am headed with my 9 month old.

I did! Now I'm well-rested AND unmotivated!

I usually take a long, long walk...down the beach or through the park. It clears the head and helps the heart. Then I get back to the computer and stare at it until something happens....

If that doesn't work - there's always coffee and chocalate.

And as Scarlet in Gone With the Wind said 'I can't think about that right now. If I do, I'll go crazy. I'll think about that tomorrow.'

That's my mother's favorite quote! Of course, she has to say it with a cheesy southern accent! LOL

Thanks for the advice!

Hi Shannon

I just found your blog!

I am bad about putting things off. I work better under a tight deadline for some screwy reason! But, one thing I do to stay motivated is work on my budget.

Oh yeah, the budget gets me every time. Log in and look at that checkbook balance and the pile of bills and suddenly, INSPIRATION!

I'm a great procrastinator, but my poor hubby hates it. I write better and faster, but freak out over everything that goes on around me.
