"it's a good week to have a good week".
in result to being motivated by this quote, I am realizing that every week should be good, every week should be productive, and every week should teach something new.
this week really needed a lot of motivation for myself. I mostly had things that needed to get done around the house, so if I didn't give myself an opportunity to get going, it was going to be very unproductive. on monday I did start a little slow, but it was definitely better than not trying at all. I want to focus on one word that is important in relation to all of this. :: t r y :: no goal is ever perfect, but I think the word "try" screams effort.
here is my collaboration of things I have found helpful and that work for me (which I am still currently working on) :
- try getting up earlier. if you don't have work, an appointment, or event that doesn't call you to get up early, still try to get up at a time that works for you and keeps you motivated. (note: I used the word "earlier", not "early"). I have been shooting for 7:45/8ish. it hasn't happened every morning, but I do set my alarm and at least shoot for it.
- study the bible. if you are not use to doing this, I highly recommend making it a habit and putting it at the beginning of your day, although what ever time works with your schedule is up to you. along with this, pray & memorize scripture.
