Motivation

Halloween biscuits
People comment that I get a surprising amount done, and wonder how I stay so motivated to do all the things that I have going on. Taking a break over the last couple of weeks has reminded me of a couple of things that might answer this.
Firstly, I’m not always motivated. But I have a target and I have a plan, and I know that sometimes you just have to crack on with it.
Secondly, when you do something consistently for a long time a side effect is that you can’t imagine not doing it. So you keep doing it. Is it easier? Mentally it probably is a bit.
Thirdly, and probably most importantly, I suffer from overwhelming, crushing boredom very easily when I’m not doing something. I have to be doing something. I have been bored to tears waiting at bus stops. Thank Silicon Valley for smartphones. And bicycles.
