I've been feeling overly uninspired today for some reason. Have you ever just had one of those days where your motivation seems to have gone on vacation without you?
It started this morning, when I sat down at my computer ready to work and started to go through my mental list of things that needed to be worked on. Somewhere along the way, I got lost in thought and started clicking through links and reading up on some of my fav blogs.
After a couple hours, I tried to get back into 'work-mode' and put on my serious face. I started picking away at a client's project, but then it hit me again. No motivation. Not feeling creative today. It's hard to work in the design industry when you're just not feeling creative. Especially when there are things that need to be done, and people waiting for your response. What can you really do in this situation?
The entire day, instead of working, I was thinking about new things I could make. I tend to do this a lot when my mind feels bored... I guess it gives my brain some excitement when I switch it up a bit and try to make something new. I couldn't come up with anything... and that frustrated me. I had forgotten... my motivation is still on vacation. I can't even gather up enough of it to ease the boredom that's stirring around in my head!
I went outside. I walked my dog. I spray painted a cabinet, but gave up half way through when the wind decided to mess with me. I watered the grass with a hose, in the blazing hot sun. Why?! ....
So far, the most motivation I've had all day is writing this blog about having no motivation. Ironic?
What do you do when you're just not feeling motivated?
