seven rules for motivation

The Universe is trying to tell me something . . .

Seven Rules of Motivation

#1 Set a major goal, but follow a path.
The path has mini goals that go in many directions. When you learn to succeed at mini goals, you will be motivated to challenge grand goals.

[. . .]

#3 Socialize with others of similar interest
. Mutual support is motivating. We will develop the attitudes of our five best friends. If they are losers, we will be a loser. If they are winners, we will be a winner. To be a cowboy we must associate with cowboys.

[. . .]

#7 Take risk
. Failure and bouncing back are elements of motivation. Failure is a learning tool. No one has ever succeeded at anything worthwhile without a string of failures.

I was/am in sort of the same situation - I'm reading The Now Habit- A Strategic Program for Overcoming Procrastination and Enjoying Guilt-Free Play and it's got some pretty useful stuff in there about why we (ME ME ME) procrastinate and what we can do about it.

One of the neat things it talks about is making sure to have time for 'guilt free play' - the more you commit to playing the more you are productive at work. Interesting.
