Struggling to Self-Motivate

bored babyFor the last few days I’ve really been struggling to find motivation to get things done. I’m coasting. Doing the bare minimum just to make things happen and get things done. I can’t remember when last I have felt this frustrated or irritated with myself.

I won’t say that I’ve always been a “self-actuator” or whatever term people use. My dad used to label me as “lazy” because I’d always try and find the quickest way to get things done so I can just go back to reading books or sleeping or whatever else sloths and hermits do. This is probably what made Internet Marketing so great for me. I can reduce my workload to less than an hour a day, still pay all the bills and have all the free time I want.

Except …

What does one do with all the free time? I know, sounds crazy in a world where everyone is always incredibly and increasingly busy … I literally keep myself busy on skype, twitter and facebook. And reading the news, which just makes me even more depressed.

Maybe I need a holiday? Or a pet-project? A hobby?

These are the questions I think about. It’s no longer about “taking over the world” or building a huge empire … it’s about “what kind of value am I adding”?

I don’t think these are bad questions to ask. I know that I have a higher purpose.

Just fuddling my way through things at the moment.

    Hey Tony,

    Sometimes we need those unproductive times because they help us realise that perhaps we need to change direction or do something different.

    Enjoy it while you can. The answers will come but only if you relax into it.
