I'm smiling because I was motivated to start a project long overdue. And my motivation prompted my husband to embark upon a project I asked him to do (and possibly complete) before my lil' sister Samantha and his big sister Alicia arrive next week. There's nothing like an artificial deadline to put a fire under this kettle.
Motivation is a sublimely mysterious thing isn't it? Most of the time the step up to motivation is so much harder than the task at hand. Take this three week challenge, for example. Not saying it isn't hard on a day-to-day basis in some form or fashion, but to get to the point of commitment, well that only took 9 years. Ahem.
