I have written about articles that describe motivation. I feel that motivation and creativity as you approach your professional goals are requirements, but generally people view creativity and structured routines as polar opposites. I know I have at times fallen into that trap, believing there is no need to stick to a structure when I’m feeling a very creative flow. The trick is when the flow is gone so is your structure. In all of the reading I have done there is a consistent thread, the most successful people have structure in their day-to-day activities. This is the support mechanism that allows you to continue to succeed when you just don’t feel like it, and we have all felt like that from time to time. Structure is a friend to ongoing creativity and continued success. Some good reads on this topic might be found by reading Joanna Jast. I have read a couple of her books recently and am a fan. Good Luck and Enjoy the Read.
