Motivation Versus Results, Help? – WBC 37
I wish I had a dollar for every new project or venture I took excitement in on this here Internet. I have started so man blogs, video shows, podcasts and who knows what other types of projects, without every following through on any of them, but this weekly blog challenge.
It’s something that I can’t quite figure out. I don’t understand what it is about ME that prevents me from following through on things. It seems like I have such excitement for things, but I then lose interest shortly after. It really truly hit me tonight, but stemmed a little bit from a comment one of my best friends made to me on my blog about my video blog (Tippin I’m looking at you). I’m not at all like bitter or hostile about the comment, because he’s like 300% right. I don’t know why I can’t follow through on things.
Is this a trait that is changeable? Am I trying to do too much, or are my eyes bigger than my “stomach” if you will. I tend to see things on a larger final scale, but don’t realize how truly hard it is to get to that point. I also am not a patient person, and wanting instant gratification is a major flaw for me I think.
I guess I’m asking for some helpful tips from anybody who reads this. How do you follow through with things? What keeps you motivated even when you feel tired, lazy or just not in to it some times?
I think the best phrase that I heard that I can apply to myself is “Jack of all trades, master of none.” To be completely honest, this was a thing brought up in a work review as well, and though my work ethic and dedication is never questioned, I don’t want to be somebody who tries to help everybody, and never gets core things 100% done.
I get so excited about things, and have such high hopes in my abilities, but I can let myself down when I realize I’m not following through on hardly anything. It’s a bitter frustration that I’m not sure how you change. That’s why I need your help with what you may suggest to help complete things or how to change the way I am.
I thank anybody who contributes, and I appreciate you reading. 2 hours away from missing this week. Phew!
