Finding time.

If you’re passionate about something, you’ll find time to do it.

Who’s heard that before?

But, what if you aren’t motivated?
What does being motivated even mean?

Motivation: our inner drivers that are kick started from an innate need for something we want — partnered with a choice to acknowledge it… because we care about the outcome.

You can do whatever… but you don’t.

Why?

Again, I’m going to say fear of failure.

Because, if you don’t try, you can’t fail.
And, therefore the opposite is: if you try you will succeed… right?

Nope.

Roadblocks are put in your way to slow you down, to try to stop your or to make you change direction. And, then, you get lost. And time slips further away from you. So, you find other things to do until you can get motivated again.

But, lightning will not strike you to get you off your seat. You must be the lightening rod and be the motivation.

It’s going to be up to you to figure out how to get better at enabling yourself to do the work, with focus and drive: harder than before.

HOW?
Get inspired. Find someone else figuring out how to get to the finish line.

But, don’t just watch them, cheer them on. Support them.

There’s something magical about watching how other people’s problems are being solved in front of you. They found the time. And if they could, can’t you make the time to solve someone’s problem? You are being selfish if you have the answer and use “I don’t have time to help you” as your excuse.

It’s up to you to put your work first, because the solution puts someone else’s need on a pedestal. Take a moment to embrace that reason that got you to come up with the concept in the first place. Do you remember why you were so passionate about it in the first place?

If so, carve out the time and get back to your craft and push out the work.

While the sum is greater than the parts, it’s the practicing and working on the parts that is super important.

KT (Keep trying.)
