I’ve been struggling with motivation lately. How can I keep myself working and creating? When I lived in South Florida it was pretty easy. I hated everything about my life and wanted a way out. Building a business and making art was something that kept me hopeful about the future. I was also fortunate to find a friend, now a best friend, that was also trying to do the same thing. We kept each other accountable and had weekly meetings and brainstorming sessions.
Currently, I am in a place where I’m happy. I don’t hate my job or life anymore and am pretty content. This is making me lazy. I also don’t have someone creative around me to keep me thinking. Why is it that being miserable prompts creative work and being happy doesn’t? It’s so easy to come home and get wrapped up in My 600lb Life marathons instead being productive.
I need help! What do you do to keep going? How do you keep yourself accountable and motivated?
