I am feeling very overwhelmed today. I’ve got several huge projects I am trying to finish up at once. It wasn’t until I looked at the blog topics I was linking to that I realized that there was an underlying theme here.
In 5 Ways to Stay Motivated to Finish What You Started, Hani Al-Qasem said, “When they are in a state of overwhelm or frustration their motivation to keep working is hindered. Their enthusiasm to finish off what they had started is greatly reduced and may lead to stop working on the project altogether.”
Tonight I know exactly what he means. It might as well said, “When I am in a state of overwhelm or frustration my motivate to keep working is hindered. My enthusiasm to finish what I started is greatly reduced, and I am so tempted to quit working on this project altogether.”
Luckily I had already done step 4 and 5 and went on a walk. That really helped.
Plus here are a few more articles that I felt inspired by today:
