What's your motivation?

That's right.  Why do you do what you do? 

I've been thinking about this for the past few days.  I started a new job two weeks ago and I'm not really sure that I like it.  Worked a nine hour shift yesterday and today I work ten.  It wouldn't be that bad, but I don't work normal hours.  I work early afternoon into late evening.  That steals into my writing time and I don't like it.  It's not what I excepted.  I keep trying to remind myself that it's all worth it.  It's a high stress job, but it's worth the money.  And I need the money to go to New Zealand this year, so I can actually go. 

B-E-A-utiful!  I wish I were there now. :)

What's your motivation for a job?


  1. I wanna go there, too!

    I do what I do because that's what I want to do. It's not easy, but I don't want it to be. Here's to accomplishing your goals this year!

    Happy New Year! :)

  2. Hmm, David stole my words. I'm lucky to be doing what I love (raising and teaching my children), even though it's a lot of work and takes a lot of time.
    I hope your new job becomes easier as you get used to the hours and that you find a lot of joy in it!

  3. I would like to say I do my job because I love it. I do love programming. I just don't always love the projects I have to do. So basically it all comes down to money :) I do like having money.

  4. My motivation

    Paying gig? Have the money for food, clothing, shelter and pay back debts for my education and other many debts. Sorry, no real love for it.

    Writing? I love it. I really do.

  5. My motivation has always been saving for something or paying the bills. I've never been excited to go to work.
