Re: [Chat] Motivation and goals

@tomo_13 helping people is definitely a big motivator for me to do things too! I'd say it's also the reason why a lot of us post here on the forums Smiley Happy

Re: [Chat] Motivation and goals

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

 

I just get short bursts of motivation that pop up from nowhere.  Generally during SACs (assessments) that I have to do in class because if I fail I'll get close to having to redo the year level.

Re: [Chat] Motivation and goals

Hey guys. Sorry I'm late!!!

 

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

 

I started NaNoWriMo for the first time in the November that just went and I was super motivated to write and work towards the goal of getting 50,000 words written. Since I started in the last week of November, I didn't succeed, but I've made it to that word count since and I was determined that I was going to get there before February of this year, which I did.

Re: [Chat] Motivation and goals

It sounds like we've found that motivation can come from lots of different places. Which leads us to our next question:

 

Where do you think your motivation came from? Did you motivation waiver?

@roseisnotaplant I love that we both used the example of NaNoWriMo, haha!
