Lately my motivation has been all over the place. Some days, I get into work and feel so motivated to get stuff done. I was feeling that way this morning. I had a big block of time available at work today, so I stopped and got Starbucks on my way in to give me an extra kick of motivation and got to work. It was GREAT. I got so much done in the first several hours of work today. I felt like for sure I would be able to get completely caught up on some of the things I was putting off.
Until something happened that completely threw me off my game. Let me tell ya, the rest of my work day was all over the place. My motivation tanked, and I was completely unfocused. It took most of the day for me to get back on track and get things done. On top of that, I actually had a different blog post planned for today, but when I sat down to write, I was completely unmotivated. And then it occurred to me– I can’t be the only one that struggles with the waxing and waning motivation problem.
And as much as I hate to admit it, motivation isn’t an uncommon problem for me. But on the bright side (since I’m trying to be more positive!) I’ve learned a lot of strategies over time on how to get motivated when you don’t feel like it.
