Staying motivated, productive and why being comfy is a terrible thing

Today is Wednesday, on Monday and Tuesday I sat at a desk all day and got very little useful done. No tasks were knocking down my door so I had comfort room. Today is going reasonably similar, though I have spent 3 hours fighting with something that should have been simple, it feels very unproductive. At lunch time I thought I was hungry, so I walked to a couple of shops and decided I wasn’t hungry for those things and walked back to my desk. Yesterday I spent hours organising stream overlays and subscriber alerts, I told myself it was necessary. Today I’ve set up automated tweets and facebook posts that go out when I blog, that’s useful right…

 

On Monday I pulled all my T-shirts out the draws, bagged half of them up for charity and organised the rest, I now have a draw of ones I like, a draw of massive sloby ones, a draw of jumpers I never wear and a draw split between decorating attire and smart-ish ones, I don’t own any actual smart clothes… that was productive?

I could go on, but the point I’m trying to make myself realise is. These are minor satellite tasks, distractions almost, not usefull in the grand scheme. If I’d gotten on with what I should be doing I wouldn’t have a jobs list for the rest of the week. Instead I’ve sat at screens for 3 days and all I’ve successfully done to myself is a headache, because I’m comfy I can get away with this. I have enough in the bank for food and bills and it makes you slip into a terrible rut. I’m not hungry or driven right now, I need that feeling back. I’m going to go search for some motivation. I used to find it in a good playlist but that doesn’t seam to be having the effect these days. Maybe coffee is the answer.

Just a side note, in streaming news I got my camera yesterday another thing I wasted time on, stream overlays. All the same its an awesome camera and I can’t wait to start streaming with it. With the newer model out the price has dropped and if you lookout for the amazon warehouse one with scuffed packaging you can get it pretty cheap.

Hope to see you on a stream one day soon
