Motivation is that magic like force that keeps us going through life. One can't have enough of it. Problem is that it is decays, expires, cannot be chased or collected. It comes and goes seemingly randomly. At least that is how I learned to see motivation as. Sorry for sounding pessimistic but it is hard to say good things when you don't have motivation.
Mike Stone wrote about his struggle to find motivation back in June. When I first joined Fosstodon and was a much more amateur in life, I saw Mike and Kev as role models in IT. Now seeing that Kev had problem keeping up with #100DaysToOffload that he started in the first place and Mike is also facing lack of motivation too, I am relived 😐️
I worried about something being inherently wrong with me. It turns out motivation comes and goes. There maybe a way to find motivation but I come to believe that the way to find motivation is different for everybody, time and occasion.
For many occasions the motivation for Mike was his family. Me writing this post instead of postponing it for 1 more day is the fear of feeling shame and at loss.
