I'm Gonna Need You To Come In On Saturday... (The Post About Motivation)
Thankfully, I actually become more motivated as my mortal and biological clocks ticked louder and louder. What's been difficult has been maintaining consistency across all platforms -- my health, my family, my writing, my work, etc. I was killing Wii Fit in January, but one flu and one trip to NYC later, and I stepped on the balance board for the first time in a month last night.
Same with this blog. I was so proud of myself for posting somewhat regularly for awhile there. Then...nothin'. I kept saying, it's about being authentic. Don't post if it isn't going to be meaningful to your followers...all beautiful 15 of you. However, I do always have ideas about what to write, but I just lost that routine I so desperately crave to keep me on the horse.
Soooo, I decided to write about that tonight. I watched the Super Bowl (Hell Yeah, Saints!), and I realized, those guys stay motivated. I need to, too. Maybe I'll ask our readers. Share tips on how you stay motivated -- is it carrying a picture of the family or of that Audi you want? Is it psyching yourself up? Is it a pitcher of coffee? Tell me all your tips because I guarantee I'll probably try them all, and videotape myself doing so for a future post.
