What’s Your Motivation?

What's your motivation? Motivation... What a wonderfully cliché word

What got you out of bed this morning?

Do you wake up just to go to a shitty job or a boring education, just to survive another day? Or do you wake up filled with happiness, ready to take on the day and its challenges in all its glory?

And I know that we all have both our good and our bad days. But try to look at your life on a greater scale than just the last week or the last month. Are you motivated?

9.58! What Usain Bolt Taught Me About Opportunities Last Night

Usain Bolt broke the 100 meter sprint record

9.58 seconds – the new world record in the 100m sprint. Possibly the biggest single event in track and field in the last 50 years.

9.58 seconds moves the line for what is possible. It was moved at Usain Bolt’s 9.69, and now he did it again. Only better. 0.11 seconds is the best improvement on the 100m world record since electronic timing entered the scene in 1968.

Accept yourself and others will do the same Accept yourself and others will do the same

Ever had some kind of mental thought loop running through your mind, again and again?

It could be about a desire; you know you’re not supposed to think about it, but you still do. You try to distract yourself for some time, but it keeps coming back.

It could be about an ex girlfriend. It could be an image of your naked grandmother you got printed in your mind when you walked in on her in the bathroom. It could even be a song you just can’t stop humming.

Valentine’s Day, a Few Thoughts

My thoughts on Valentine's day My thoughts on Valentine's day

Newspaper columns, blog posts, small talk at the local café; it’s everywhere.

Valentine’s Day. It seems that you have two choices regarding this “special” day in the middle of February. Either you love it, or you hate it.

The arguments usually go something like this:

Typical Negative side: “You should be able to do romantic things every day, and not rely on some specific commercial day.”
