Welcome back for another update of my 101 goals in 1001 days list. To see my original list and my other update posts, check ’em out here: original, update 1 and update 2. I’m not as satisfied with the progress I’ve made since my last update, but hey, that’s real life sometimes. With the rebrand of the blog launching NEXT WEEK, there are a few things that will get completed at that time. However, there are more exciting things coming soon that will help keep me accountable for the rest of the things on this list. Fingers crossed!
Welcome back, friends! Today I’m sharing the third installment in my Bloggers Who Inspire series. Like in my posts featuring Erica and Savannah, I interviewed today’s lovely lady about motivation and inspiration and will be sharing her responses with you all. Who am I featuring, you may ask? The genuine lady boss behind both But First, Coffee and Caffeinate and Conquer, Kallie. Like in the other posts, I’ll let Kallie speak for herself. Without further ado, here’s my interview:
In today’s day and age, it is rare that you come across a student of any level that says they are not stressed, concerned or anxious about one thing or another. To some degree, stress can be a good thing, even a motivator. However, I’ve found that I need to recognize when those opportunities arise that will allow me to be successful in taking advantage of my stress. I have read many a book and listened to many a podcast about this topic so I feel confident in that I know what I’m talking about. That being said, I’m not an expert. I hope you come away with a useful trick or two and feel more reassured by your stress level.
In case you couldn’t tell in my post on college tips from a senior, I am feeling less than motivated heading into this finals season. How do I give myself a little kick in the pants? Usually, by reading inspirational and motivational quotes. Often times, when I read inspirational quotes particularly about schoolwork, I roll my eyes and have the urge to yell “THIS IS A LOAD OF CRAP!” at the top of my lungs. Since that’s largely looked down upon in public spaces, I turn to more general inspirational quotes. After my interview with Erica, I’ve become really interested in the things and quotes that motivate other people – let me know what motivates you in the comments!
