Just Get It Done

Reading Time: 2m 8s

Motivation is kind of a strange word. Because it doesn't really mean what we think it means. We think, it means that we're fired up to do something. We think that it means we're eager and passionate to make something happen. And we think that, somehow, we should just be able to turn on that eagerness and turn on that passion. But we can't. Because, you just can't turn on passion. You can't just turn on the desire to execute a task.

So, to motivate someone, is to explain to them. Why they're doing what they're doing, how it will help them, where it'll take them, why they should continue to work, struggle, and fight. Why are you doing what you are doing. 

Remind yourself that this struggle, this temporary pain, is a fight. This fight that you're in, this is what will make you stronger, faster and smarter, and better. And then, with that motivation. Go forward into the fray, into the storm, into the heat of the battle where victory is for. What do you do on the days when you're just not feeling it? Those days, when I'm tired or worn out, or just basically sick of the grind? 

Well, what do I do on those days? I go anyways. Get it done. Even if I'm just going through the motions I go through the motions, I don't really want to work out. I work out. I really don't want to hammer on a project? I hammer on the project. Don't really want to get up and get out of bed? I get up and get out of bed.

Now, these could be signals that you need some time off, and those signals might be right. They could be correct. But don't take today off. Not today. Wait until tomorrow. Don't give in to the immediate gratification that is whispering in your ear. Shut that down. Do not listen to that little voice. Instead, go through the motions, lift the weights. Sprint the hill. Work on the project. Gets out of bed.

You need to get things done. If not, you are going to miss. That is one thing that you should procrastinate on. That's the one thing I want you to put off until tomorrow. And if, when tomorrow comes, you still feel like you need to rest? Okay, the chances of that are, you will realize that the desire to rest is just a weakness. It's just the desire to take the path of least resistance. The downhill path. The easy path.
