On Motivation

Fragments from imaginary dialogues

“In my experience, motivation waxes and wanes wildly, from day to day and throughout the day. Metaphorically thinking of it as a Fire, how can I keep it constantly burning bright?”

“That takes constant work. Rekindle the Fire every single day. And it’s not enough to do it just once in the morning. Keep doing it throughout the day.

Connect it with your Presence practice. You are monitoring the fluctuations of your internal state as part of the practice. Think of it as one more parameter to monitor.

You could even ask yourself:

How’s my Fire?

You don’t want it smoldering.


Bring to mind or journal on the Macro level, and reconnect with your deepest Why.”
