Goals and motivation

Mitaka, Tokyo, Japan. Taken January 2011.

I don’t really do new year’s resolutions. Do I have any for this year? Well, let me think about it while I write this post.

For me, it’s a bit impulsive and random. If there’s something I want to do, then I’ll just go and do it providing the motivation is there.  If I set myself an achievable goal to get it done and dedicate a set amount of time to it, more often than not, I reach it. I also know my limits; while I try to push them, I do know when I am defeated. And that’s totally fine. In the end I can say that I tried and I’m better off for it.

So where does the motivation come from? It depends. If it’s something I’ve set out to do on my own, I know where I want to be at end of it which does make it easier for me to at least try. Other times, I will get my motivation from others by either direct encouragement or by motivating each other, setting goals for the both of us.

In the case of this blog, I really have been quite terrible committing myself to it. I guess my new year’s resolution for this year is to blog at least once a month (please yell at me if I skip one!). I also want to my posts to have a bit more thought rather than just the usual update. Now that a friend of mine has started up a blog of her own with one of her friends, it has really motivated me to get back into writing on here and I hope that we can motivate each other as well.
