I am one….lazy….bastard!
And an important part of getting me up and doing things is a steady stream of motivation.
Motivation is SO different from person-to-person, so for what it’s worth, here’s a couple of things I randomly consume whenever I need a shot of adrenaline:
Dave Matthews blowing his lungs out:
After a 2-year long tour, this Central Park concert was the very last for The Dave Matthews Band, and in their final song “All Along The Watchtower” he screams his lungs off (watch whole thing if you like, but screaming starts at 11minute mark):
Ellen DeGeneres speaking at a college commencement:
I like how she speaks.
Earl Nightingales “The Strangest Secret”.
I can never make it all the way through without getting several great ideas and getting back to work. Love Earl’s stuff:
Pendulum performing 2 re-mixed songs at GlastonBerry.
Cinematography is wonderful. I dunno if they’re techno or a rock band, but I used to watch this constantly at wall-shaking & neighbor-complaining levels:
Slipknot performing “Wait and Bleed” live.
I think the 1st minute of this live recording is unbelievably well done. Don’t know why. You might not wanna watch this at work or around kids:
Steve Jobs talking about poking life.
I. Love. This. Video.
I have over a hundred of these, but this might be enough inspiration to get you going.
Bookmark the one’s that speak to you.
Your lazy friend,
P.S. Even if you don’t think any of my personal choices motivate you, I’d highly suggest you put a “Motivation” bookmark on your browser. When in a lull, you’ll know what to do.
P.P.S. Please share this list with someone you know it may help.
