Sometimes the motivation to do whatever it is you want to do is lacking. For example, writing here on Medium is sometimes a personal challenge.

I get stuck. We all get stuck.

It’s easy to post on a Monday an Instagram story with #MondayMotivation. But seriously, are you really motivated?

Or are you simply going through the motions?

Each day, not just the start of the week, requires a little effort. An inner push. A voice inside us that says get moving. Do something.

The importance of this is about our own happiness. It’s about embracing each moment. It’s a point to make personal progress. Life is full of obstacles. The key is not getting in your own way.

Before you get “stuck” in the rut of your day, step back and ask yourself which is more important. Progress or simply giving in to your procrastination or in my case being stuck with my writing.

It’s a choice. But you have control. Don’t forget that. And if all it takes is a simple hashtag, then go for it.
