Dealing with lack of Motivation at University| Short rant and poem

I have been struggling with my productivity and my motivation lately. I wanted to start off this year being super driven and working towards certain goals and although I am currently doing working towards my goals, I have just had to constantly push myself to do them. This is affecting my overall work rate and productivity which is making me more demotivated.

My motivation to do anything right now is playing hide and seek, the problem is, I just can’t find it. If you remember , in my first post , I talked about Procrastination and Laziness and sort of understanding the difference and how it relates to me(I am so thankful that my posts are useful to me even months after I post them). Right now, I find myself at a place where my lack of motivation is making me procrastinate , which is also making me act Lazy.

So right now I feel motivated to right a poem(how odd) , to sort of break down my feelings if that makes sense. Disclaimer , if this turns out to be horrible, remember I am not a poet and besides you’re the only one that cares what you think. HOWEVER, if it turns out great then I am a poet, soon to be on the best seller list. Anyways, here we go.

Title: None

where are you?!

the echo’s of a voice

a saddening crack mid-sentence

To see or not to see?

the mind has chosen

not to see

the heart and body say otherwise.

Hmm Picasso, I like it.

To round up, I am honestly looking forward to looking back at this moment and this post and be proud of my self for pushing in these times and I pray God continues to lead me up my path of greatness!!.

I just want to leave this bible verse from Proverbs 3:5-6. It says Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.

  1. I have been there and seem to be in a rut recently. Even though I feel a bit motivated to blog, fear in my mind keeps holding me back. Angel on one shoulder in my passion, and the devil on the other being my ego, trying to hold me back. Great reminder here. Keep on keeping on.

  2. I love the way the poem rounds up and expresses what it feels like to be drained and have nothing else left to give! It is a kind of defiant statement in that you do give those words against lack of motivation. 🙂

  3. Sorry to hear that you’re struggling with motivation. We all go through these bouts and I’m sure you’ll find your way out of it. It may take time but hang in there! Hopefully you feel better soon.

  4. I can relate to this, but I’ve also learned that it doesn’t matter what I feel. I don’t need to listen to my feelings to… say… drink a glass of water. I’ll treat my goals that way as well.

    Of course, easier said than done, so I’m wishing you all the best no matter what happens!

  5. Im in the same boat at the momemt, I seem to use tidying and sorting as a procrastination from the things I want/should be doing.
    Gratitude and journaling seem to be helping. Hope you find motivation soon
