Almost Lost Motivation To Work…

...But I’m still going to work my butt off and complete my assignments. My batch for today consisted of three assignments from the job board, and three direct assignments. The assignments are at different payments, which means I will hit my daily quota without having to grab anything else. Of course, the fact that my first two assignments were my highest paying ones today definitely helped lol. I never get into specific prices, by the way, I don’t care to do that for some reason.

I did the two higher paying assignments and then gave my eyes a break, so I still have four more to go. The second assignment did take a while to do though...but that happens sometimes. I’ve been kind of tired all day, and that has caused my motivation to decrease a bit. :-/ I could go for a power nap, but it is around 8pm my time, so let’s not and say we did. I’m just going to push through and get my work done. I’ll start with the direct assignments I’m not really feeling, just to get those out of the way, and then move on to the two I’d rather do. That’s been my new method for the past few weeks; getting the work I don’t feel like doing out of the way first.

Sooo, I should probably stop blogging and get back to work lol. I’m going to TRY to post again before I hit the hay, but I make no promises. In the meantime, you all enjoy your evening and take care.

There's never any rest for those who work from home, is there? I hope you got everything on your to do list done emoticon :smile:

It doesn't seem like it, yet people who don't work from home may think otherwise. Thank you, I'm about to make my final post of the night (which will be on here) and then I am outta here! :)

Yea I always try to get the work I don't want to do, done first it makes it easier I think. Otherwise you just might not have the motivation to get it done later.

Yes, eat the frog first - that is get the worst job out of the way first. I have also heard it said that "First swallow a toad", which has the same meaning.

Working from home is just as exhausting as working outside the home, just not as stressful.

I find that working from home means far less time off than working outside the home - and usually less pay too emoticon :sad:

Right! I hate it when people act like I can afford to just skip a day for no reason at all (I work M-F), because I don't get paid days off; nor can I just drop everything just because I'm home. I have work to do and deadlines to meet.

Exactly! I just get it done and then I'm like "Heyyy, I'm doing the assignments I -WANT- to do" lol.

I think this is the first time I'm hearing both quotes; but they definitely fit here lol!

I think each one can be just as stressful; depending on what stresses each person out.

Most assume that if there's no boss looking over your shoulder, you can slack off when you want. In a way it's true, but they fail to understand that you only get paid when work is getting done!

Exactly! I definitely have periods where I procrastinate, but then I wind up going to bed later because I didn't finish during the day. But working from home is still WORK. I've had several friends ask me about it -like they're showing interest- and then not follow through. I can't help but to ask "What did you think you'd be doing?" It has it's perks, like creating my own schedule, but it's still work!
