I have a hard time with this, sometimes, in choosing approaches. One approach is “fake it ’til you make it,” and just keep being positive and upbeat. The other is unflinching honesty, and admitting when I’m down / unmotivated / depressed.
Today, I’m veering toward honesty — I’m still having a hard time getting motivated. I suspect the general burnout problem I was having in April is persisting, and after a grand total of two days of trying CBT I felt a bit better and stopped, so I think that’s on me. I need to get back on that.
I need motivation to get motivated! This 100-day thing isn’t cutting it… yet. Maybe the sense of urgency will kick in.
