Lately, the thought of motivation has been on my mind.
On the topic of New Year Resolutions, how many people actually stick by their goals?
They say it takes 21 days to stick by a habit.
If that’s the universal truth, how come people give up upon the second and third month?
And for those who keep the habit, what motivates them?
What I realized is that we place too much emphasis on the end result, especially when our creativity is involved.
Is it because we overvalue our own creation?
Is it because we expect others to adopt the same value?
When our innovation and heart is poured into something, it’s hard not to have expectations.
And would that misalignment of expectation be the cause of de-motivation?
We often share our goals and resolutions to our peers.
Is it to hold ourselves accountable?
Or is it to seek recognition?
