I woke up at 6am .
I stretch and drink a glass of lemon water.
I read for half-an-hour, then get in a 20 minute workout.
I take a cold shower, drink a protein shake, and brush my teeth.
On my way to work, I listen to a podcast.
In the office, I dig deep into my creative flow.
I get tons of work done and reach my goals.
On the way back home, I call my mom and do the groceries.
I make myself a healthy meal, then work out.
One hour of writing and one hour of reading.
I turn the lights and fall asleep with a big smile on my face.
I couldn’t have done more, I gave it my all.
I feel amazing, on top of the world.
A perfect day.
I have them once in a while, about once a week.
On other days, I wake up at 7:30
I don’t work out, my shower is hot, my podcast is music, social media fucks with my flow and I don’t get my work done.
I order take out and watch Netflix.
But I still sleep like a baby.
It’s okay not to have perfect days. Its okay to not be on top of motivation mountain.
We tend to think of motivation as a tireless source of driving intrinsic energy and we get confused when we lose it, when we feel unmotivated.
But motivation is not a sprint, it’s a marathon.
It’s not giving up on trying to have perfect days.
