I found THIS list of common excuses on a blog, and it got me thinking. I don’t know why the blogger posted it, but I think it would be a great way to motivate yourself in everyday life. We all make excuses for procrastinating, but if you’re already aware of it shouldn’t you be able to avoid it? I’m probably not the only one who could use some help here, so I’ve posted a couple of lists of the things I most often say to myself to justify being lazy.
So now that I’ve made these lists I’m planning on taking a look at them every time I’m feeling particularly lazy. Hopefully they will give me a good kick and remind me of how great I will feel when I am done and can enjoy a good book and a cup of hot chocolate. Because I’m actually always in a good mood after spending a couple of hours cleaning up the apartment and doing laundry. I love looking around and thinking “whew, that’s much better!”
What do you do to motivate yourself?
