Need A Burst Of Motivation?

Usually I am full of energy this time of year. The warm – sometime hot – weather and the abundant sunshine naturally get my engines revving.

Ian BrittonTypically, I’m busting with motivation to be more physically active, revitalize my social calendar, take on home improvement project, tackle a professional development project or learn something for fun.

Not this year.

It’s been unusually rainy and cold in the Twin Cities. I’m starting to wonder if spring will ever come …

Instead of waiting for an external cause to motivate me, like the weather, it’s time to stop making excuses and rev my own engine, so to speak.

Care to join me?

It’s not complicated. Here’s a list of things to do when you want something from life but are not motivated or not sure where to start.

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
~Mark Twain

Bonus: Because summer is coming, sunshine or not, I’m nominating Sara Bareilles’ “Brave” as our summer anthem.
