How Do You Motivate?

Motivation:

Do you have it?

Do you want it?

Do you know where to find it?

 

I answered no to them all. Not that I don’t want to be motivated. Really, i would love the motivation to get up and go and do and finish etc. etc. etc. However, do I want to get motivated and then go crazy trying to do everything at once…like I usually do? NOPE. No thanks.

SO what next? If I don’t have motivation and I don’t want to get motivated and go crazy, what do I do?

I asked a few friends about motivation and how they handle it.

The top responses were:

  1. I just kind of do it when I have to. Having to motivates me.
  2. I want to get things done so I can do fun things. Rewards motivate me.
  3. I’m trying to get my life together and every small finished task motivates me.
  4. I have no motivation. I don’t care. Let me sit here.

Clearly I have a cross section of friends. So I pose the question to you:

How do you get yourself motivated (in general)? Do you have certain goals or activities that push you along? Do you have certain goals or activities that you need more motivation for?
