When is a time that you've been really motivated to work towards something?

The last few months I've been working on opening my own business so thats definitely something I had and have to have motivation for

Hmmm... I find that I can get motivated to start lots of things - sticking with them long-term is the issue for me Smiley Tongue I've used motivation to work towards a uni degree, buy my first car and get help for my mental health issues Smiley Happy

....Shortly before my assignments are due Smiley Tongue

 

I do struggle with motivation a lot but I guess when it is something I am really passionate about I am more motivated Smiley Happy

If it's a project I'm SUPER into, that helps me with motivation. Also if it's something important, or if it's due really soon, I tend to be motivated to do things, but I much prefer the first reason. I did NaNoWriMo last year (where you write 50,000 words of a novel in the month of November) and that was really motivating because I had a daily goal to meet, and a bunch of other nerdy amateur writers supporting me.

That's a huge project @tomo_13! Was it something about the project that made you motivated? Or something about what the project did for you that made you feel motivated?

@May_ nothing quite like a uni deadline to trigger a panic-fuelled motivation hahaha Smiley Tongue

@Ben-RO I would probably say what the project did that motivated me. I knew this is going to help people, so I really wanted to get it done for them. But also I'm motivated to reducing bullying so that was also a big motivating point.
