What’s Your Motivation?
You know you should………….
clean out your files
save more money
But that project just keeps hanging out there. Every time you think about it you feel bad that you haven’t started – so you have another cup of coffee and a cookie and read just one more chapter in that book.
I challenge you to look at your vision and motivation.
Why should I walk more? It is important for me to keep my joints moving so that I can participate in activities when traveling and have the energy to play with my grandson. And when I look at the “should walk” that way, I might also see other activities that I might enjoy that would accomplish that vision. I can plan times to do a variety of activities to help me reach my vision
Why should I clean out my files? I know that tax time is around the corner and when that time comes, my vision is to walk into my accountant’s office with everything in order and without any stress over missing files or papers. I also know that I will save money if I have done my preparation so thoroughly that it will be an easy task for him to complete my forms. I have time now to schedule several short sessions to see that everything is in order and I envision waltzing out of a short session and going out to enjoy a nice lunch as my reward.
You get my point. Instead of having a lengthy list of “shoulds” have a vision of how you want your life to be. Then make a plan to bring that vision to life and schedule times to work that plan.
Pick one “should” now and work on your motivation and vision. I would love to hear what you have chosen and how you plan to work toward that vision.
