I am pretty much a self-motivated person; I love my job, I enjoy my down-time, I don't often sit idle, unless I need to re-charge my batteries.
But, having said that, I am a bit of a procrastinator. I am always busy, but not always busy doing what I should be doing! Deadlines are good for me, I always meet them, and they help to focus me on the essential rather than the pleasurable! I have just competed almost 500 termly reviews, so feel I am due a treat or two. So I have gathered together all my Christmas card paraphernalia and will enjoy making my cards this week, when I have a free evening!
So, to stay motivated, this is what I aim to do:
Live life to the full.
Always look on the bright side of life.
Don't worry, be happy!
In the words of one of my Music heroes, Prince, "Positivity, yes! Have you had your plus signs today?"
