Having a terrible time getting motivated

Beautiful outside right now and all I've accomplished today is sitting on the couch eating chocolate and cream cheese brownies....
I gotta get moving! I think between work and my addition I've burnt myself out.

Sometimes getting started is very hard. One way is to pick small easy projects at first. When they are done you will feel better and more ambitious. On the other hand, if you have a low grade flu or other illness, the resting may be necessary. Good Luck, Rick

My dad once told me that starting a project id the easy part, the hard part is completing it to the end. I have found this very true especially when you mix a full time job and family responsibilities with all else we do. Once in a while it's ok to have downtime. Just don't let the downtime consume the time you have to get things done that are in the way of life and it's necessities. Just don't start practicing for retirement yet, you are way to young. hang in there recharging the batteries once in a while is a good thing. Roger

That's what I just did. Went outside Sat on the swing in the yard. Looked around. Seen some stuff that needed done and kinda went at it.
Would it help if you just sat in the shade outside? After sitting there awhile, you might get up and putter a bit.
Feel better. My addition work has made me lazy. Grass needs cut. But dad will get it tomorrow or the next day. Gives him something to do.

I did the same thing, after remodeling mom's home, then moving in, I shut down doing anything. My old house is still sitting empty after 16 months, we just now have got to the point of having someone moving in and doing a rent to own. I just had no motivation to do anything.

I'm motivated, but I'm old and sore, I planted over a hundred flowers yesterday.

I find that while the mottivation is present the energy is not always. Heath makes me get up and do things. If I don't he will waller around on me till I am rubbed raw. Getting moving is a self defence mechanism.

All of my motivation has been used up on 'others' jobs lately! I get home and motivation to work on something only to find the energy on EMPTY!

I think I am going to have to start sending my coffee out to members. Lol
I hate coffee....maybe that's my problem.
Tonight I worked on the 128 for a little bit. Till my wife yelled at me that the kids were driving her nuts. Also put up a couple of my toys(not gt related) for sale. See what happens not real noticed to sell but I need to generate some cash for breaking ground on my new garage project.
