I feel like I’m currently fluctuating between high and low levels of motivation.
Chris Dare is someone I used to frequently look to for inspiration when I was a student at UBC. I recently read in the news that he successfully summited Everest this year, bringing his Dare7Summits goal to an end.
At the same time, I’m finally coming to the end of Michelle Obama’s Becoming. In this book, I’m learning about the struggles and accomplishments of the Obama family.
There have been several times over the past several days where I’ve felt super motivated to do more. Seeing what other people have accomplished makes me feel like I’m not doing very much. It makes me want to do more.
But at the same time, I feel like there’s so much that I have to do.
In thinking about this just now, I wonder if I have too many things on the go. I wonder if I have too many priorities. I wonder if I have too many un-important things on my plate.
Maybe I should start by giving some things up.
