It’s been a slow morning and even the two things that I’m about to list below weren’t helping. I’ve had the morning off work and could have done so many things – grocery shopping, exercise, writing, cleaning the house, etc. What did I do instead? Watched interviews on youtube about the cast of Pretty Little Liars. Yes, my motivation was seriously lacking!

What do I usually do to get going, get inspired, get something (anything) done?

Suggestion One: Make a list of three! You pick three things that you have to do today and you do them. That way something gets done and anything after that is a bonus – and usually you will keep going. This usually works when the items on your list don’t take up a huge amount of time and aren’t hugely complex.

Suggestion Two: The 10 Minute Rule! Whatever it is you have to do, commit to it for at least 10 minutes. You will almost always continue on for longer than that and if not, well you are 10 minutes ahead of where you were originally.

I’m sure if you search for ideas/suggestions you will find many more detailed answers than these. Feel free to share your tips in the comments…….

(And seriously, how good is Troian Bellisario (Spencer) on Pretty Little Liars?)
