How do you motivate yourself?

  • I´m a freelance writer and blogger and lately my creativity is really going down the drain. I´m blaming it partly on the fact that my hubby is gone a lot these days, so I´m attempting to write while two small children scream at my feet, but still, this has to happen to other people, too.

    So, what do you do to motivate yourself when you´re feeling blech and just want to toss in the towel?

  • I try to do one small thing. If that small thing is getting myself more prepared to work on a project so be taking a shower, organizing my work space, or setting up the document that I'm working on (page margins and fonts, etc.). I feel like if I'm all set to start work, then it's less painful to sit down and do it when inspiration hits me.

    Hope your funk gets better!

  • I make a lists of everything I want to achieve....somehow seeing it all in writing in front of, gets me moving!

    Sometimes you also just have to give yourself a break, you know...maybe take a few days to do other things...non work related.
