Last week I talked about how sometimes, I get into a rut. Especially if my tasks at work and at home stay relatively the same, it's hard to get excited. And when tasks aren't exciting, sometimes that means they don't get completed. Not good, right?
So now when things get boring, I try to follow the advice of Pittsburgh's own Andy Warhol:
I know what you're thinking: easier said than done, Mr. Warhol. Sometimes the little things are really boring. But each time you make yourself be excited by the little, mundane things, the easier it will be. And soon, you'll get excited about the little things, like sending emails. And creating that cover for your TPS report. BORING, but make it something thrilling. It will get you through the tasks you put off to the ones you're excited about.
That is, of course, until you see everything as thrilling. Then you'll be so excited about work you won't know what to do with yourself! Right?
