Sometimes, you get up because you have to.

Sometimes, you get dressed because you have to.

Sometimes, you complete the project because you have to.

This is one of those weeks. I just HAVE TO. Yesterday, my husband decided to get up early and make breakfast. While scarfing down this breakfast, I felt like it was wrong for me to sit still, that surely everyone else was out in the world being productive, and I should also be moving around, being productive. I did the dine-n-dash from breakfast yesterday, feeling that I just had to.

I don’t really like doing things because I have to. Who does? But, I think that’s the difference between success and failure. The people who can be productive because they have to, even when they don’t particularly WANT to! It may not be inspiring, passionate, or energizing, but at the end of the day, productivity during “the grind” is make or break. This is one of those hard realities that “adults” talk about… well, now I’m an adult, so I officially have to do things sometimes. There’s no magic in it, until you look back a few weeks later, and realize that, in spite of “having to”, you came out with some pretty great work. Like the outfit? See more details here!
