Having a lazy moment but need to be getting something done? Push through.
I know how it feels to have those days where it seems like everything in the universe is working against you. The days where you know you have to get things checked off of your to-do list, but all motivation is gone. Here’s the thing, no matter how lazy you might be feeling, the energy comes from DOING. I used to think that waiting was the thing to do when I felt this way, and that the energy would eventually come. Running a business has taught me otherwise.
Some days, there are more things to do than I would like to accept, but I have to push myself out of the lazy state and just START the action. Start moving, start designing, start photographing, etc. This is on my mind today because I’ve had a very rough week personally, but I needed to accomplish 2 photoshoots for my brand. Today was my product shoot, specifically. I wasn’t feeling inspired, I was worn out emotionally, and I just wanted to rest. But I pushed myself to get into the studio and start taking photos. The energy came in the MIDDLE of the process. Not before. It was the best photoshoot I have done to date, and I’ve been photographing for over 10 years.
Push through. Success is on the other side.
