Motivation

Filed under: — Bravus @ 10:45 am

Just a kind of blah-mingled-with-panic day. It’s cold, I have half a flu, my office computer has died, I have to teach later. I have work piling up, and more and more of it coming in… and just can’t really get motivated to do any of it.

At some point I’ll get started, I assume. But while I’m not either clinically depressed or bipolar, I do tend to have cycles of massive productivity and focus, and others when it just doesn’t really happen… and forcing it doesn’t help.

Sadly, the rhythms of work and my personal rhythms don’t always synchronize well. ;)

    Cassie and I know exactly how you feel…

    As it happened, the day started sucky but ended well. I bit the bullet and got a few of the quicker tasks off my plate, did some thinking and preparation, ended up teaching what I think was a good and successful class… Just gotta hang in there, and bite it into smaller chunks if it’s too big to handle!
