Stay Motivated and Don't Lose Momentum During Breaks!

Last Update: February 21, 2014

Hello my friends!

I figured I would take a moment to speak with you concerning those breaks that you are taking! I am a born procrastinator. When given the opportunity I will put something off until the last minute 9 times out of 10 and it has been a struggle in my life to keep my pace up.

Those breaks between courses are important! I haven't taken the full 10 days that Kyle suggests, because that could cripple my momentum, but I do understand the importance of taking a break. You can reach burn out really fast.

Remember in any school or University you take Thanksgiving, Christmas, Winter, Spring and Summer breaks. The reason is undeniable... it prevents total burnout.

During these breaks (if you are taking them)... it's ok to do a little work here and there, but don't forget about the progress you made and the great things you accomplished to get to where you are today. Don't let yourself become unmotivated. Don't lose your momentum!

I was beginning to feel that way and the past few days I have dragged my feet a little bit. Well.. today I forced myself to take on another lesson and remembered that feeling of accomplishment I felt in the previous lessons and am again looking forward to tomorrow's lesson.

Here is the article I wrote today and I am very happy with it. http://itsyourbusinessnow.com/new-minimum-wage I do welcome any feedback and comments on the website! Feel free to let me know what you think. :) If I hadn't have kicked that procrastination habit and that dragging my feet feeling then I wouldn't have made progress today.

Sometimes you have to kick yourself in the you-know-what to keep your momentum going!

I wish you all luck! Keep moving forward!

Very good post, indeed. And I like your page layout, especially the faded areas to highlight your point. Wish I knew how to do that.

Thank you mackiejw... I think you may be referring to the quotes I am putting. In the text editor in wordpress I click on the quotation symbol at the beginning and unclick when I'm done. It makes the area gray and indents the paragraph section I'm writing. Hope that helps!

I know the minimum wage increase is hurting small businesses. I don't envy you there. I think you did a good job leading in the WA opportunity. BTW, you do need to take small breaks.
