How Did I Manage to Get That Done?
by Caleb Newquist on
I'm sitting here thinking about what to write in this note today and I've got nothing.
"I'll make another cup of coffee," I tell myself, "That'll do the trick."
Medication for inspiration! That got me thinking about when I was a young CPA and the majority of my inspiration came from a manager or partner rolling up on me and being, like, "YO. I NEED THAT THING," because accountants are not so good with the words. That'd be enough to jostle me out of whatever haze I was in to get motivated for at least the rest of the morning.
These days I don't have the luxury of someone breathing down my neck to get me going. I rely on little things to get the words out of my brain and onto a screen.
I imagine many of you deal with the same feeling -- "Okay, I'm here. Not feeling it, though. What's gonna motivate me?"
So how about it? On the grueling-iest of grueling days, how do you get things done? I'd love to hear from you, so drop me a line  or comment below.
