I just didn’t have the motivation to do the work this week.
And. We. Often. Don’t.
How do you get motivated?
The only antidote I know for ‘curing’ a lack of motivation is simply doing. When I say doing, I’m not even talking about doing it well or perfectly or for a long time.
I’m suggesting simply doing/starting something for which you thought you needed motivation.
It doesn’t take long for your motivation to quietly appear and sit right next to you. That’s often what happens with me. Given the choice, I’d rather lounge around reading books in peace.
Sharing what I know and what I process/think deeply about (such as this post) isn’t something that comes naturally to me. I’d rather keep it to myself.
Selfish?! I know.
I had this word – Motivation – in mind for a few days after a coaching call with a client.
I really haven’t been that motivated to share it with you. But as a coach, I always aim to live the life I teach and share. So I sat down and started writing that I didn’t have the motivation… and the rest has, as you see, unfolded quite easily.
We don’t have to wait for motivation to arrive. It never seems to come when we wait around for it.
As you move towards those first few words, or take that first step, and do it just for a few minutes, your friend ‘M’ will appear when you least expect it.
