Fate? Bah to fate

A few questions from a reader today -

I've been in a slump recently where I have gotten very little done, and i was trying to figure out how to stop it. I could clearly see I was slacking off, falling into a pattern (probably an old one) of using my time more or less pointlessly and getting only the essentials done (which i was greatful for). I was able to turn a good portion of the wasted time toward something productive, but the time itself I still consider a waste, things I was doing without an intension to use the experience.

So I have two question here. Whats the best way to pull yourself out of a slump, to re-engage yourself and bring yourself back up to the projected level of prductivity (or at least a realistic level) ?

Fundamentals. Fundamentals are the only way out of slumps. A little exercise, a little eating well, enough sleep, some time in nature or breathing, some time with people you like, setting goals at the beginning of the day for the day, starting work on those right away, and sleeping on a decent schedule.

That's the only way I've found. There's no magic. When in a rut, work on fundamentals to get out. While that's not always easy, that seems to be the only way. Also, celebrate the small victories. If you're off-track and doing things even a little right, have a little celebration.

That's why I've put together a list of 100 motivational quotes compiled from previous blog posts as well as my twitter account. All are 100% original (to my knowledge), so they won’t be the same cliche quotes you’ve already heard 100 times.

1. You can fit in or you can stand out. You can’t do both.

2. You have to go through failure to reach success.

3. It's impossible to improve if you're unwilling to admit improvement's possible.
