re: How do you handle days where you just aren't motivated? VIEW POST


Yeah, binaural music helps me. So does switching into pomodoro mode and using the breaks to get up and get away. It helps to remind myself during the 25-minute "on" periods that I don't have to push through boredom all day - just for the next 25 minutes.

"Helps" is key. Sometimes it just doesn't.

I think at the heart of it that boredom is not caring. I never get bored doing home improvements. It's my home. I own it. I'm invested.

I am really grateful for my work because, for the most part, I own it. I don't get second-guessed or hemmed in by bureaucracy or committees.
