NaBloPoMo 14 - motivation and museums

1. Are you a motivated person by nature? If you need motivation where do you find it?

I have become more self motivated with time. When I was younger, I was naturally lazy, but the fear of failure was a huge motivator. I think it's a first child thing. I also liked being the best at things. So I would achieve but take as many short cuts as I could.

In later years I have developed massively useful organisational skills. I learnt to prioritise workloads, to set schedules and deadlines, and that life is much more fun if work isn't hanging over you.

I have also discovered the joy of the list. And crossing things off lists.

So now I would consider myself a motivated person. I try and complete tasks as soon as I can, to a quality standard so I can get back to my bed, books and chocolate.

Today I have mainly worked from my bed. It is the only room in the house with space, as the kitchen project has taken over every other room. This is both comfy and disconcerting.

My new work lease car also arrived, so we also had a bit of a drive of that. Very nice it is too. Shiny. Anyone want to buy my old Golf?

Then this evening I have been plastering the holes in the walls of the kitchen. This was my first shot at proper plastering rather than fillering holes, and I don't think I did too badly. Tomorrow it all starts in earnest, with the lovely John arriving to help fit units. Better try and get the painting done before he arrives. Possibly the flooring too.
