Motivation: Getting Back Up & Running

WakeUp-CatLike a really good night sleep, where you want to just stay in bed for hours. After coming back from a relaxing vacation, I find myself just can’t seem to get back into the same flow. (This could be a good thing if you can get rid of a bad habit, like being a workaholic)

On regular trips, I can recover & get back to things pretty quickly. Although this time, i couldn’t … especially on this blog. It took a week to get most of my core schedule back on track, like Work Schedule, Excerising, Waking up on time… & the 2nd for the other schedule such as this blog. To pull myself back on track, I had to realign several elements of my motivation:

Mindset: Brainstorm some new ideas & make notes … just try to get excited about the project/job/work

Goals: Reminding myself the purpose & revisit the vision/mission/mantra (Update if needed)

Focus: Setting a schedule/time & reschedule when needed, this is to create a sense of urgency.

Environment: Place myself & laptop in a coffee shop without wifi

It took me several tries in both weeks to not get distracted before I was able start writing again.

Do you have a project you are worked on that almost got dropped off? What did you do to get back on track?
