I’m trying to muster up the motivation to write a post about motivation. But motivation isn’t really the problem. I’m having a hard time deciding what I want to say.
Sitting here staring at a (moments ago) blank screen, I’m imagining the different people who might read this. Each one with different needs, different challenges, different problems, different situations – trying to string together a series of words anyone could relate to.
Well, that’s just not going to work.
Oops! I fell asleep in front of my laptop. I guess I needed it.
As a freelancer, a small business owner, an individual running a non-profit – motivation can be hard to come by when you’re running on empty. Outsource tasks if you’re able (if my laptop goes wonky and I can’t figure out the problem, I’ll take it to my favorite techie), give yourself permission to take breaks, try a change of scenery (I moved out to our front porch to finish this post).
And if you’re having a hard time deciding what to say in a post – be transparent, let the words flow and let the real you shine through. You’ll have more success capturing your thoughts and your post will have a better chance of engaging the right people.
