Monday Motivation :: I’m ON It!!!


Monday MotivationOh… so close… so close to launching my new project… I don’t need much extra motivation today, I just need more time to get it all done! ;) In fact, the only thing I really needed an extra push on today was putting up this post, because I am so dang focused on my work right now.

But not everyone is focused all of the time - sometimes even I have to drag myself to my desk to write 5 words. So hopefully a little Monday Motivation will help with your projects today.

So you may be wondering what the heck is Monday Motivation, anyway?

Step 1 - let us know what you are going to get done today (your to-do list, so to speak).

Step 2 - put it in a comment below or a post on your own site.

Step 3 - let us know what will motivate you to get it done - a reward, consequences, or whatever you need to think that will ensure you do what you say you are going to do. I’ve found that the public announcement and accountability is a particularly great motivator, but throw down consequences if you really need a kick in the pants to get stuff done!

Today before I go to sleep I will:

  • I WON’T clean out my inbox of 281 emails. But I WILL go through all of them and answer the most pressing ones. (Please forgive me if you’re waiting on me! ;) )
  • Complete two more sections of my project
  • Email TextLinkAds about some account stuff

I fear committing to anything else, wanting to make sure I have the time to work on and troubleshoot any details of the work I am already committed to for the day.

Plus, if I don’t get this done by the time I go to bed tonight, I will send a Kiva entrepreneur an additional $200. Now I’m really scared.

So what are you going to get done today?
