Motivation Slips Away
It would probably set a good vibe if I opened up my blog with a motivational quote. Motivation is a huge part of my daily life. I constantly make to-do lists and set reminders so I can always stay on time with tasks. It’s really easy for us all to get side-tracked. Social mediums like Facebook and Twitter are huge sources of distraction. All of the photos, links, hot girls.. How could someone not forget what they were supposed to do? Those systems were designed to continuously keep our attention. Because we are imperfect humans, we become distracted and time just seems to slip away.
What is Your Biggest Distraction?
Let’s discuss what your biggest distraction is. What keeps you from competing all of those things you wanted to finish? Is it a lack of energy? Or that new TV series you can’t stop watching every Tuesday night? It could possibly be hanging out with friends and spending too much time on your social life. I know that sometimes I get lost for awhile in music. I’ll turn on my new favorite song then start singing and dancing around the house. You can stop laughing at me now- I will dance anywhere, anytime.
Do You Want to Dance?
For whatever distraction you have, keeping the right balance between work and home life is extremely important. But for those of us who want to complete just a little bit more.. For those of us who want to be even more productive.. What is your biggest distraction? Is it easier for you to keep dancing, or is it easier to just sit down and do the work? What keeps you motivated to be productive? My kids and my goals are what keep me going every single day. Tracking my progress daily has also been a huge motivation for me. I love seeing my stats grow!
