Sometimes it can be hard to meet deal lines, finish tasks, or write blog posts in time. 

You see, it's really hard to stay motivated all of the time. But I think that I've found the secret to staying motivated in your everyday life, and since I'm a nice guy I'm going to share it with you.

Treat Every Day Like it's a Marathon

It sure sounds inspiring doesn't it? But what does it mean?

As any of you who have ever walked or ran a marathon know, it's pretty tough. Marathons are meant to be hard. The word marathon comes from the story of Philippides who ran from Marathon to Athens to deliver the news that the Persians had been defeated. Do you know what happened to Philippides? He died. He ran the marathon, finished, and collapsed on the ground dead. And he was a pretty strong dude, his job was running around all day, so he was pretty good at it. And he still died. 

Marathons should be impossible. I don't know how some people can do it and live, but they are wrong.

So if marathons are impossible why should we treat every day like on? Because if you start a marathon and you get over halfway and give up, you still accomplished something. If you get up in the morning, eat breakfast, do some work, then check out somewhere around 11:30 am, you still got through 3 or 4 hours of being productive, and that's something to be proud of.

Treat Every Day Like it's a Marathon, because only freaks finish marathons.
