I used to have problems with ‘motivation’. I don’t anymore, because I’ve fully internalised the notion that motivation is a myth. In fact, I think we’d all be much happier and get much more done if we scrubbed the word motivation from our vocabulary altogether.Here’s a quote from one of my favourite articles on the subject:Motivation, broadly speaking, operates on the erroneous assumption that a particular mental or emotional state is necessary to complete a task.Put simply, motivation is waiting until you feel like doing something before doing it. Discipline on the other hand, is doing it regardless of how you’re feeling about it. Here’s another fun quote:At its core, chasing motivation is insistence on the infantile fantasy that we should only be doing things we feel like doing. The problem is then framed thus: “How do I get myself to feel like doing what I have rationally decided to do?”. Bad. The proper question is “How do I make my feelings inconsequential and do the things I consciously want to do without being a little ***** about it?”.-Ali Abdaal
Wow, got 3 As, an unconditional from LSE, and you still want people to suck you off? You are a huge narcissist.
