Combating a Lack of Motivation

Day 8-10:08 pm: This post is going to be a short one. My little one is still awake and it’s so late! I think it’s because we were inside all day due to the rain. That’s also a reason why I didn’t get much accomplished. Trying to keep a toddler entertained during the rain was not easy, and therefore I didn’t get to do much of a job search, or work on much of my business.

But we did get to play in some puddles.

So how do you combat a lack of motivation? When it’s rainy outside and all you want to do is cuddle up on the couch with a cup of tea?

What I did was I kept thinking about my goals. I kept thinking about what I really wanted. I kept thinking about how if I made a little more money we could hire someone to put up gutters on our house so my hubby wouldn’t have to be standing on a ladder with a rain coat, swim trunks, and flip flops in the pouring rain trying to fix them. Or, we could afford to pay someone to pick up our groceries for us and deliver them to our house so I wouldn’t have to go out in the rain.

So, even though all I wanted to do was watch a movie, I managed to find the time to work a little bit on my business and write this blog post. Because I need to keep going, for my family.

So, make sure to keep your goals in mind.

Ok, my little one is having a melt down and I need to go!

Good luck!
