If you want a motivational kick in the ass, try reading a horribly written piece of fluff, listening to my neighbour's practicing rock band or take a look at how messy someone else's house is. I've never felt the absolute knowing that I am completely awesome when faced with complete garbage. It honestly sets me on fire with the thought that 'I could do that waaaaaaay better!!!!!....in my sleep!!!!'. Then I get up and actually do something, produce instead of consume and think there's always something more I need to know before I begin.
If you're looking for inspiration, download a 'free e-book', sign-up for an e-course on a free website (lol), watch an obscure B-movie, eat imitation cheese, check out a cover band in a dive bar and go to a Target store in Canada before they finalize disappointing an entire nation and get yourself some (bad) perspective. Let me know how that goes for you.
