Good Housekeeping, May 1925
I mentioned in my post below that I have had a hard time motivating myself to get my work done. I've been mulling on that today, and then I read a blog post that reminded me that I don't have to "feel like" getting stuff done. That was a much-needed reminder to just do what I need to and learn to enjoy it.
Why is it so hard for us to do things we don't like? Probably the biggest reason is that we are lazy! We like ease and comfort, and we don't want to do anything that requires effort on our part. Another reason could be selfishness - I want to do what I want to do. We have "I" trouble! We also think most jobs will take longer than they actually will, so we think we don't have time, when in reality we all have the same 24 hours in a day that everyone else has. We have varying priorities, of course, but we all have 24 hours a day - no more, no less.
I want to do better, and with God's help and some determination to "just do it," I will do better.
