Motivation and inspiration can be hard to find when building a new skill. Especially with something so expressive as writing, you look toward life experiences and serendipitous moments to spark your next topic. However, those moments feel few and far in between. I do love sharing on the blog but motivation and inspiration could not be my sole driving factor to keep content fresh and exciting. I came across some great advice and found it applicable to other areas. Most of the time, the solution is the problem. My problem has always been staying consistent. Consistency is also the secret ingredient to successful work.
March 14, 2017, I had a mental breakdown. I was slouched over in the office of my professor stressing out about an upcoming large-scale event on campus. I’m usually calm and collected, the one organized person during the craziest time of the semester. However, this time, I was hours away from jetting off to SXSW from Chicago and nowhere near prepared to leave all of my responsibilities behind. This was the result of very poor planning. So how did I overcome it? It was very simple and I have to share it with you! This will help you get your life together…for real this time!
