I get by with a little help from my friends…
Motivation is never a constant. Someone who tells you they are always motivated is lying…or crazy. One of the hardest things to do for me is to ask for help. However, as I start to look for it, sometimes help finds me.
During Christmas break, I went off-track, waaaaaaaay off. When I returned to work I felt sluggish and sad. In a burst of New Year’s motivation I hadn’t been feeling, one of my coworkers posted this calendar in our office:
She encouraged us to put up a sticker each time we worked out. It’s a small thing; maybe a bit childish too, but it worked! We all began gleefully sticking up our stickers and cheered on others as they put up theirs. I looked forward to this little ritual and skipped fewer workouts because I wanted my stickers up there too. It’s lovely to have help, even when it’s the small, silly kind.
