So I got this job to get my out of my "lazy spell" turns out, oher than showing up, I just sit around and eat all day.. when i get tired i take a nap, then go on break.. Sometimes I go to the smoke shack and hang out with other real workers.. but then lunch or something comes up. and yeah.. i get paid big bucks for this.. Okay.. you think im kidding.. well im not. These are days I actually get to go to work (wet weather days our crew doesnt work at all) K. Sometimes at work.. if im lucky, i get to walk a dozer, or sometimes a crane or track hoe. Every now & then i get to rub down a crane with grease or clean it. my nickname is Oilermaker cause people working hard see me and say.. Whats he do? -Hes a Oiler.. -"I want his Job!"

I think an essential thing is doing simple tasks: washing dishes, knitting, getting out of bed, showering. and then slowly moving forward onto the bigger ones. one step at a time, you know.

Reward yourself. just not with food. That goes awfully wrong sometimes. I miss my bed.

Buddha said (in a language more beautiful than English): 'Where there is a Deed, no Doer can be found; where there is Suffering, no Sufferer can be found". Life is not permanent don't take it too seriously. Shoot, this doesn't help the cause, right?

Sometimes I wonder if I really want to recover.

On 2012-04-05 20:32:51.263872 by Lisa

Maybe I am unmotivated because I don't love what I am supposed to be doing.

Why do it later when I can do it now? I have other things I want to do later and I don't want this to hold that up. Do more with less. You can snowball or you can build momentum, it's just a matter of which direction you want to spin the momentum.

I don't have a real prescription for doing...I sometimes feel completely unmotivated to "do". When I'm told to "do" it makes me only "not do" for longer. The only thing that makes me "do" is to decide right then to do it...and then do it. Right then. No thinking. Just doing. Works every time.

Liking the Alain de Botton quote.

I wrote a little something for all of us recoverers here and out there:

Laziness probably points to a deeper problem,
Stop beating yourself up for it.
Self-esteem is important for fufillment, joy, and inner peace,
Work on it.
Perfectionism is a bitch,
Fuck it.
We are all humans,
Remember it.

Recovery is a slow and gradual process,
Enjoy it.
Competency, contribution and creativity are gratifying goals,
Aim for it.
The world can be such fun,
Discover it.
Doing is a habit,
Nurture it.

Hope this helps :]

in bed. drowsy and unmotivated. slide the unlock on the iPhone, stumble upon app. I see something that took hours of work and focus, and I look at my groungy legs half twisted in a comforter. and decide it's time for me to make something that great as well. So someone can stumble upon my art and look at their restful legs, and do something..

I find throwing myself into situations I am not necessarily prepared for or comfortable with is one of the best attitudes I have adopted over the years. It might suck for a while, but I always find after I have grown and learned so much and often connect with so many new people in meaningful ways that these experiences push me on to do even more and find more love and respect for the complexity of life.

Action comes first. I lack motivitation and find it really hard to get started. I suffer from Depression and know that Action itself in any form helps, even if its only doing something small like tidying my apartment. This often helps me to settle down to paint or take photos. Its really not easy and I dont want to appear as if I have it sussed. Most days are really really hard right now.

I've lost motivation to do homework.

Really like this quote/tweet from Alain de Botton: Point isn't to achieve everything, just to pay respects to one or two of the things one suspects oneself capable of. It gently inspires me!

I have to feel cold and caffeinated to accomplish basic tasks. I have a problem.

On 2012-02-07 11:47:00.490847 by Corina

i had the same problem. i think i still do. i'm trying very hard to do stuff. i'm an illustrator, i guess i have some kind of talent, i love it, but it's so hard to get my ass off and get creative. but it feels so good when i do.

I need to learn patience to give someone their space. Why is this the hardest thing I've ever done? I'm going to go 25 more days. Thats my goal!

i believe all talented and intelligent people are lazy......she described me too well

On 2012-01-29 02:43:15.908774 by Annie

I am so incredibly intelligent and talented, but without motivation those aspects of myself hold no value. I just wish I could give myself a swift kick in the ass and take advantage of this life that has been given to me. What is holding me back?

On 2012-01-24 20:33:30.212658 by Sergio

Exactly the same lazy feelings sometimes and the worst is that I know that I am being lazy...
