Recently I have seen quite some posts about “Motivation”.
What motivates you to get out of bed? To make your bed?
What motivates to you drive to work? To actually work?
What motivates you to cook? And clean afterwards?
This is something that I seem to differ from many others.
I don’t really need motivation.
My parents are early birds and we’d have breakfast at 8 on weekend morning.
After that, I was expected to help in whatever needed to be done.
Cooking. Cleaning. Doing groceries.
But all credits to my parents, they did make these activities fun by putting on some music, making into a game and reward me afterwards.
I developed a routine and simply sticked to it.
I singed a contract where I promised I would put 40 hours/week into my job.
You can cheat a little bit here and there, but once someone notices it, prepare for confrontation with the manager. Or worse, HR.
I rather lose sleep than having those discussions.
Do what’s good for you or you have fun doing
When I hear people saying that blogging is too much work, I get a bit disappointed.
Most likely, blogging isn’t your job.
Of course, keeping up with reading can be challenging.
But if writing itself takes too much effort, it might be time to change your strategy.
I usually finish posts in approximately 15-20 minutes.
Why? Because I try to stay under 350 words.
Also, if there too many hurdles with blogging, do you actually really like it?
Today is my 4th day of the ” 30 days Squat challenge”.
I will try to do at least 50 squats throughout the day.
I am simply curious if the facts are real 😉
I asked Jasper the same this morning. “What motivates you?”
He looked at me with his sleepy morning face and sighed “Obligations”.
We burst into laughter.
Do you need daily motivation to do the regular this things?
