Making Motivation

We give desire too much credence. I’m all for the intuitive, but there’s a point at which the tail starts wagging the dog.

I just ran for the first time in a long time. It felt great. I’d been putting it off, creating excuses, finding alternatives, but in the back of my mind I knew:

What I do determines what I desire. Motivation follows action.

When I’d been running for months on end, I wanted to keep running. When I took a break from running, I wanted to be done running.

We give desire too much credence. I’m all for the intuitive, but there’s a point at which the tail starts wagging the dog.

Just because you don’t want to do it doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t do it.

Instead of thinking about how you don’t have motivation, start thinking about how you can create motivation.
