The other day I was talking to a good friend about all the projects I'm currently working on. During the conversation he made a remark on how I have quite a lot of aspirations.
He didn't mean it in any kind of condescending way but he might have had a slight feeling that I was reaching for more than I could grasp. Or just that my list was somewhat daunting.
Still, I actually took it as a compliment. It put what I was doing in perspective for me. It had me feeling glad that I'm reaching out far and in nearly all directions.
It gives me a real sense of...
No, not the thing on, "The US being 'destined' to expand across the North American continent," but rather the sense of being able to change and bring about your own destiny. Have your goals and be actively working towards them.
The more I plan and more importantly, the more I do, the more I feel in control of my life.
Honestly though, just having a lot of aspirations doesn't grant me an equal amount of motivation. I often have trouble getting started on projects, picking up where I left off, and/or actually finishing them. The battle for motivation is a constant one. o.o
I could just blame it all on my ADHD or Bipolar but I don't. There are things to help me deal with those and so letting them become a road block for me would pretty much be just a bullsh*t cop out. I mean c'mon I've got this aim! That crap's not gonna break my stride! D:<
I have worked to become far better at creating my own motivation. This site thing is a good example. If someone would have told me at this time last year that I would be doing a blog where I make at least one post a day and that people actually READ it, I would have said to them, "Shut up man, I'm trying to play DarkFall..."
The best method I have found for reaching any goal is to break it down and work towards it bit by bit. Before you know it you'll be closer to your dream than you ever expected! :D
