No motivation!

Last Update: January 31, 2019

Ugh, it's cold outside!

Here I sit in a comfy chair in my warm house with the world at my fingertips. Why would I want to be anyplace else?

Blogging is new to me and I'm only just beginning to learn the lessons that will enable me to do it successfully. Nevertheless, it has quickly become my full-time job in that it consumes all of my time.

Before I'm out of bed in the morning, I'm on my phone reading blog posts from people in my blogging community.

Then there are questions on the lessons I have completed and it's surprising how many answers I know. How can I ignore them when all of my own questions receive almost immediate answers?

Where did all the comments on my blog come from? I can't ignore those. Oh, my. Most of my commenters have websites, so I check them out and comment back.

Shouldn't I have had breakfast by now?

There's no time to eat. I have keyword searches to do and content to write. When will I ever figure out how to make my website more attractive?

My "to do" list keeps on growing faster than I can cross off my tasks! Notifications roll in non-stop adding more followers to check out and follow back.

When I glance at the clock, I realize it's late and I should have left for work by now.

I have lost my motivation. I don't want to do this anymore.

I don't want to go to work at my part-time job just because it's paying the bills for now. I want to stay home in my warm house and my comfy chair and keep on doing what I'm doing.

I'm looking forward to the day when doing this pays the bills. That's when I'll want to leave my comfy chair in my comfy house and see with my eyes the world I hold at my fingertips, taking my work and my community wherever I go!

I totally understand! Please do eat breakfast and take care of matters though :-D

When I have the occasional moment to myself I am reading "12 Rules For Life" by Jordan B Peterson - he addresses some of these things in his book.

When it comes to the full-time commitment, try this:
