Busy Week...So Let's Talk about Motivation Again!
So this week has been a bit busy so I haven't had a chance to write up a full post. I still wanted to put something up today so I thought I would throw together a quick entry about motivation. Recently I posted about staying motivated and how it is one of the hardest things we have to deal with as, well, humans. It's so easy to just shirk your responsibilities for whatever it is that is striking your fancy that day.
The other day I ran across this video on YouTube:
The above linked video is about how this guy forces himself to get out of bed in the morning to take a walk. And how every fiber of his being wants to stay in that warm bed. We all know that feeling. This very thing happened to me on Monday. Sunday night I declared with an air of determination, "I'm going to the gym tomorrow morning. Honey, please wake me up at 5:30 so I can do so."
Fast forward to Monday morning:
My Wife: "Hon, get up."
My Wife: "Do you want to go to the gym or not!?"
And that was it. An hour later I woke up, still sleepy and bummed I failed to do something I really should be doing for my health. The video doesn't propose any answers to how to overcome these issues and frankly neither do I. But know that everyone struggles with them.
I guess the only way I know how to handle it and the only thing that has worked so far is take it slow. Baby steps. One day at a time. Every little thing you do be it practice for 20 minutes today, or spruce up your website, anything at all that helps you grow your business or achieve your goal is one step closer. It may be a small step but that doesn't matter. It only matters that the step was taken.
