Monday Motivation

Some weeks you need a little more of a kick in the butt than others. And regardless of whether you have a normal Monday – Friday gig or your Monday is actually a Wednesday, we all have ‘Mondays’ when we hit the snooze button one too many times and then spend the rest of the day playing catch-up.

getting it done

This one I actually have printed out and in my office. Love the water colors. (find it here)
And ain’t nobody got time for that.

I will be the first to admit that mornings and I have never been on good talking terms – we have just decided to not like each other and go on with our lives. Having said that, I do still need to actually get up and get my day started, AND then I actually need to do stuff.

And sometimes the ‘doing’ is the hardest part.

But if I have some sort of inspirational do-dad (that’s a technical term by the way), whether it’s something on my wall in the office, on my gadgets (big fan of wallpapers), or the book I’m reading, that gives me the motivation I need on those days when I’m less than motivated, I’ll take it anyway I can (think of it as ‘intellectual’ coffee, coffee for the brain, but without the actual coffee…. on second thoughts, forget that, coffee is coffee. Don’t mess with the coffee).

So to help you on those days when you would rather just hit the snooze button one…. more…. time, here’s a few of my favorites that help me reach that proverbial get up and go…. to get up and get going.

strong enough
This one came from an awesome site. If you need more inspiration to kick butt go here.
failure and success
Love this one – you can find it (and a few others) here.
Disney… a great motivator that one. Unfortunately I had trouble locating the original source of this one. So if anyone comes across the original please let me know so I can give credit.

And this last one I think just says it all…

lost excuses
Funny how the excuses we tell ourselves stop us from achieving that which we really want. Source.

Till next time – up and at ’em.



(and just so you know, I had this post planned for about three – that’s right three – weeks. It took me till tonight {Sunday} to get my motivation to do it – hence the new print in my office… funny how that works)
