Struggling to Self-Motivate


Posted on 14th May 2013 by Tony in Random


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.

If you have any thoughts, please add them to the comment box…

    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.

    An intriguing discussion is worth comment. I think that you should publish more about this issue, it might not
    be a taboo matter but usually folks don’t talk about such topics.
    To the next! Cheers!!

    Howdy, I do believe your website could possibly be
    having internet browser compatibility problems. When I look
    at your website in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in I.E., it’s got some overlapping issues.
    I merely wanted to give you a quick heads up! Besides that, great website!

    You actually make it seem really easy together with your presentation but I in finding this
    matter to be actually something that I believe I’d never
    understand. It seems too complicated and very vast for me.

    I am having a look forward on your next publish, I’ll
    attempt to get the grasp of it!

    When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added”
    checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four e-mails with
    the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
    Appreciate it!

    Hey would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult time
    selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and
    Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs
    and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

    I was curious if you ever considered changing the structure
    of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve
    got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the
    way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
