My Motivation

Thursday, October 18, 2007

I consider several things to be my motivation: my health, my kids and spouse, looking better in photos, my desire to "get more out of life." However, when I look at my progress, I realize that my "lazy streak" or my over developed skill at procrastinating are somehow overshadowing my motivators. I need to overcome the procrastinator in me and plaster my motivators all over the place: pictures, words, phrases at work, at home, in the car... Not tomorrow or next week - NOW!

    Just keep plugging away, procrastinating may mean it will take a little longer, but eventually you WILL get there! You've got some great ideas and just need to put you plan into action!!!

    We are in the same place. Up and down still trying to motivate to do what we know is right. I think it doesn't become a habit to do what is right, it becomes a habit each day to make a choice. I am focusing on noticing and making the right choice as each thing comes up and my pro and con start sitting on my shoulders. LOL It's a daily battle.

    Boy, can I identify with the problem of procrastination. Sigh. It really is my biggest problem area when it comes to exercise. You have some excellent ideas by having visual reminders of what you want placed around you. I am going to try that also. Thanks for sharing. I am learning that the more I put something off, the more stress it creates for me. Once I get feels so good yet I have to fight with myself to get started.

    I've got that procrastination problem too. If I don't get a schedule nailed down, it doesn't happen. Right now I don't have any schedule at all. We can beat this, right?

    You go, girl. It is another step in your self understanding.
