I have found that my motivation and inspiration often comes from unexpected sources. Even the most random experience or encounter can ignite a spark within me. Whether it’s a conversation with a stranger, an article that I’ve read, a piece of artwork, or a piece of music, I am always open to the possibility of finding inspiration in the unexpected. Being receptive to random experiences lead me to unexpected bursts of creativity and motivation. Often, these moments of inspiration may seem insignificant or disconnected from my goals, but they spark a new way of thinking that can lead to brand new ideas.
Once I am motivated, I tend to accomplish a lot in a short period. With the right mindset, I do a good job of managing my time, prioritizing tasks, and seeing results. Once motivated, I’m able to focus my energy and attention towards achieving my goals, and this often results in me being able to get a lot accomplished in a relatively short amount of time.
Unfortunately, I tend to commit myself wholeheartedly to a project, often to the point of over-exertion. This, of course, frequently leads to burnout and exhaustion. Then I can’t seem to get anything done. I now recognize that these are the times when I need to step back and allow myself to rest and recharge. When I take the time to meditate and relax it helps me to refocus, but it takes time before I am mentally able to find that renewed motivation. I try to make a conscious effort to prioritize self-care, but overdoing it when I get excited about a project just seems to be a part of who I am. Can anyone else relate??
