It’s Monday morning, how are you feeling about things? Did you spring out of bed with great enthusiasm to take on the day?
Now, I’m not saying I necessarily feel this way every Monday morning, but I do think it's a good gauge and self-assessment tool for your current circumstances. Motivation is a funny subject. Sometimes I think it has diminishing returns. On the other hand, maybe that’s the point. What if we are supposed to re-engage often? Motivation and satisfaction are topics that are meant to be discovered and rediscovered. What gives you meaning and what you are passionate about today might shift and take a few pivots along the way. The one constant is purpose.
A clear purpose will allow you to be doing what you are supposed to be doing when you are supposed to be doing it.
Find your purpose and, no matter your circumstances, you will find a way to find meaning.
Find your purpose and your Monday mornings will become less unbearable.
