Musings of a Museum Fanatic: Motivation?

2.11.2013

Motivation?

Have you ever had one of those days where you just can't bring yourself to do anything more than just watch terrible reality TV and play mindless games online?

I fee like I've been in a month of that.  Don't get me wrong I haven't just been sitting in front of my computer for a month not showering or going out into the world.  It seems when it comes to actually sitting down and being productive with something I just can't bring myself to accomplish it.  

It took me a month and a half to finish up the crescent canvas but yet it still sits on my desk unwrapped and unsent!  There are emails that really need to be sent about Pampered Chef and bloggy things but for some reason forming coherent thoughts to write them just seems to impossible.  Don't even get me started on the insurmountable task that is a cover letter this month. 

Do I just have a terrible never ending case of the Mondays?  Or can I blame it on the back and forth weather in Chicago?  Maybe just the fact that it's winter in general and when I looked outside I just want to curl up in bed.  

Maybe this week I can power through and actually accomplish something.  If someone has found my motivation please grab it and send it back to me, it will probably be singing "Livin' On A Prayer" and dancing in circles. 


Last week
1.  Write one wedding post. 
2. Write my About Me page
I actually wrote it this morning since I didn't want to have only one thing on my list completed this week!
3. Work on my Pampered Chef page (writing it, figure out what should go there)
4.  Workout three times this week
5.  Add 6 items to my closet app every night

This week
1.  Send in 20 job applications (I know it's kind of a high bar since I'm in Mondays mode but I need to get my butt moving with my job stuff)
2.  Send out three emails about hosting Pampered Chef shows
3.  Make one appointment to go meet with a professional contact 
4.  Workout three times this week
5.  Add 6 items to my closet app every night

  2. I blame winter for the blah- unmotivated feeling. I feel the same with regards to my grad school to-do list. Good luck with this week's 5!!

  3. I COMPLETELY understand what you're saying. I feel like I was in an unmotivated, stuck, come home from work watch TV, BLAH mode for pretty much ALL of January & I'm fighting it off for February, too. I think it's the season?! That's what I'm blaming it on!

    You've got some great goals this week! Good luck with the job applications! That's tough, but, I KNOW you can do it!
