Today I just want to crawl back into bed, under that warm and toasty down comforter and get just two more hours of precious sleep. I don't feel like writing or searching for new prospects. I don't feel like responding to emails. I don't want to work on copy for my new website. I just want a day off.
Whenever I felt like this in the past, I'd call in to my job and take what I like to call a "mental day," but I work for myself now and have to admit that I miss that luxury. If I don't work, then we don't eat. I'd probably feel a lot worse if I had spent my weekend working on client projects. I did spend time working on my new website, but I consider it time well spent. But today I feel "blah."
When you work for yourself, you can do whatever you want when you want; but if you have bills to pay, it's not much of an option. You have to figure out how to motivate yourself to get up and get going – even when you don't want to. I love what I do, but honestly some days I just want to spend them doing nothing.
What does it take to get moving?
It's early in the day though, so I can still turn this situation around. Maybe I'll take a break to do some yoga, put on one of my favorite CDs and dance it out. Sometimes that's all it takes. How do you keep going on days when you just aren't feeling it?
