A few days ago I woke up thinking it was late although I still felt a bit tired. I did wake up very early considering I went to bed late (like always) I should have slept a bit more but knowing how much work I had I was fighting to get out of bed. I have always been an early riser although I tend to go to sleep a lot later now so it translated into a late wake up.
That day I really wanted to stay in bed but something magical happened. When I was fighting my decision to get up. I looked to my side and my daughter Daniela was smiling at me and greeting me. I guess at almost 6 months old she has enough energy to convince me that having the opportunity to wake up and enjoy her is motivation enough to get up and start producing.
I had always heard how people would say that their kids motivated them. I guess hearing about it and really experiencing it are two different things.
I have always been very loyal to my close friends and family and I would do anything for them. But being a new dad makes me understand what everyone was trying to convey and if I would do something for them I can’t imagine what I would do with my Daughter.
My daughter fills me with energy every morning when I see her smile, giggle, or make baby noises.
So overall being a dad is an incentive to help me produce better work for my clients at CIMA IT Solutions and to do a better job sharing my thoughts with you here and on raulcolon.net.
What things motivate you?
How do your kids play into your daily motivation?
I really want to read your thoughts and experiences on how your kids get you motivated.
Very beautiful!!! Brings back memories and reconnects me with that time during my son’s infancy.
