There are so many things I want to do, and I am so, so very tired.
There never seems to be enough hours in the day, although truth be told I spend most of them sitting on my ass in front of a computer. That’s not to say I don’t love you, Internet, but I really should be getting out and doing the things that I want to be doing. The only thing stopping me is myself and a lack of energy. Things I want to do, or do more of:
- Bytowne movies
- Beer events
- Writing in coffee shops
I think that’s a fairly decent list, as these things go.
But something always stops me. Either there’s something on the internet that pulls me in – and it doesn’t take much – or I just don’t go. I need a better system of self-motivation, because obviously what I’ve got isn’t working for me. Sometimes I think money will do it, like when I used to pay upwards of $500/month to see a personal trainer. Sometimes I try to set up a reward system, but when you get yourself whatever you want anyways, that doesn’t really work. I try to picture myself as one of my favourite ass-kicking characters who would never just sit around reading Reddit, but sadly, I am not Starbuck, no matter how much I pretend I am.
I want to live life, not just exist. I want to feel fulfilled.
So readers, how do you motivate yourself to do the things you *want* to do?
