Personally, I find it quite difficult to motivate myself to do anything productive. I prefer to just sit around and be lazy (I am working on it okay, don't judge).
However, a couple days ago I was sitting in bed aimlessly surfing the internet when I stumbled onto a blog about traveling.
After reading over some of the posts on different tropical islands and looking at picturesque images of crystal clear water, white sand, and palm trees, a thought popped into my mind.
"How come I am not over there?"
Answer: because I can't afford to be over there.
So I opened a new sticky note on my computer and set a date for a trip in 3 months time. I have about (EDIT: 10$ lol) towards that trip at the moment but I plan to work my a** off until I can afford the trip.
Where am I going?
NO IDEA. Just somewhere out of my city. Just a trip.
So I closed all the open tabs in my web browser, made another cup of coffee, opened Word, and started writing articles for my clients.
And that is how I motivate myself to work.
