For the past month I have been on vacation and thus have not been working on my blog nor any other projects that require my attention. To me, work and vacation just do not go hand in hand as much as I would like it too! I actually came on vacation with the intention of getting some work done but as time went by and activities started filling my days, all work went “bye-bye” out the window. I think, for one to be able to get work done whilst being on vacation, they ought to have a strict sense of responsibility, determination and self motivation. I thought I embodied these traits! But from this experience, I am seeing that I clearly need to work on some things!
I have found it to be extremely difficult to be inspired, motivated and diligent when being faced with the hot sun, a cold Starbucks, shopping, exploring and spending time with my family. Some days I think, where has the time gone! I suppose I ought to feel good about the intent of getting the work done. But on the other hand, I haven’t actually gone through with it so who am I really kidding here?
But without further ado, I am back at it!
To be successful at anything in this life, you need commitment, self motivation and a “no excuses” type of attitude. Once you adopt these traits, you’ll be fit to completely obliterate your goals and be ready to establish and realize new ones.
Feel free to let me know how you balance work and vacation! 🙂
