|Motivation is often found in knowing the end result
What's lacking? Motivation. Incentive. Drive.
You'd think that my desire to be the next big thing in blogging would be my motivation, but even the urge to write has been lacking. What happened? What's the deal? Well, part of it is just plain laziness (Yes...There! I said it!)...the other part is weather (Wait! What? This gorgeous weather has been an issue?).
a : disinclined to activity or exertion : not energetic or vigorousb : encouraging inactivity or indolence <a lazy summer day>
: moving slowly : sluggish
So what can I do about the laziness? Well, for one I could stop sitting here playing Words with Friends and do something about it. What does the Flylady say? It only takes 15 minutes to make a difference? Then what is my problem? The kitchen timer is sitting right here in front of me! There is no excuse...except maybe accountability.
How can I be held more accountable? Good question. The desire to invite friends over for coffee or to hang out would be one way to be held more accountable. And, right now, I have 2 weeks to get my apartment in tip-top shape before my girlfriends come over for a jewelry party. Hmmm...there's part of my accountability. The other is so I can at least have one new blog a week.
As for the weather...today is more likely the best one...it's cold...it's windy...and I want to hibernate. No? Not an excuse? The past couple of weeks have produced the 8th warmest winter in Indiana's history. We've had springlike weather all month long and all I want to do is be outside. Well, I tell you what...I've got a storage unit out there that's begging to be cleaned up...and it's not. I could open up the windows (well, not today) and let in the clean, fresh air and air out this stale apartment.
No excuse for no motivation. I've given reason for not using each of these excuses to my advantage. So, what's next? Getting off my duff and doing something about it. Hmm...that breakfast bar needs a little attention. Let's see what 15 minutes can do to it...
