It is magnificent to figure out where to get the motivation to tackle the to-do list. Like many women, my to-do list is LONG and each day it gets longer. There are the things I need to do, the things I have to do, and the things I want to do. Creating the to-do list is easy, life does that. Prioritizing the to-do list is easy, a little brainpower makes that possible. For me, the hard part about getting through the to-do list is finding the motivation to get through the list.
Sometimes motivation comes in young voices.
I am blessed because I have four children who remember everything I say and then use it against me. When they were 4 years old, I taught my twins to be strong, proud of themselves, and to keep going no matter how hard things get. I told them to do this because they will succeed if they try. One of my favorite things to say to them is, “Chick up, you can do anything.” Now, when I claim I am tired, or don’t feel like doing things I am supposed to do, they come for me. My twins will say, “Chick up mom, you are a Davis woman, chick up.”

My search for motivation to do the right thing often starts and stops with my children. I want them to think I am a good mother, that I care for them, that they are important to me. I want my children to see me as a role model, as someone to emulate. So, I have to get things done. I have to pick up the to-do list and work my way through it item by item. Then, I have to suck it up and chick up and do my job. I love having live-in motivation and inspiration. Many of us have inspiration and motivation right under our noses. The trick seems to be to see it and use it.
So the question is on this magnificent day, where will you find motivation?
