This post should really be titled tips on staying motivated by someone who wasn’t!
Last Saturday I sat down at my laptop to work (ie write). I had my day planned out. I knew what had to be done.
So what did I do? Nada, nothing, zero!
I guess you could call it a procrastinating lapse. It was however a bit more complicated than just procrastination. I had no motivation. No enthusiasm. I felt lazy. In a nutshell I did not want to work last Saturday.
So what did I do after several attempts at trying to get some work done? I gave up and took the day off. Humm… probably not the outcome you were expecting. It wasn’t what I had expected either. To make up for it (or at least try to) I did work Sunday and Monday (which was a public holiday here).
Knowing full well I am not the only person who occasionally has this issue, I thought I would see what advice was on offer for staying motivated despite feeling anything but.
These tips would have come in very handy last Saturday!
I think my favourite one comes from Brian Clark at Copyblogger.
