    Need Motivation, Inspiration Or just a good Kick in The Ass?, Then look In here

    Hopefully a way to help some people out. Before you go on to read this though I'd like to tell you that since I posted this thread I've realised that the best cure for procrastination and a lack of motivation is just doing. No thinking, no theory but plain old getting up and getting the task done. Try that and it'll take you a long way. P.s If I can personally help in any way then I'll be glad to do so

    God looking back at this... Why are we such idiots when we are younger?

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    So Everyone seems to need life coaching these days. Everyone is searching for motivation or inspiration or just anything to moan about
    Heres a Couple of things to get your ass to work and a couple of things to refer to when feeling down
    I hope This helps some People

    Threads Asking About Motivation and Inspiration In Ca:
    Just Some Words to say.
    You don't really need all the motivation the best way is to just get up and do it. You have to want to improve want to get good and become the best you can be but remember your doing art because you enjoy it so have some Fun.

    Dont Compare your self to others. When your really hitting rock bottom and you're just losing your self take some time out and go through your own sketchbook. Look at it from beginning to end there's no better comparison than yourself, you'll see all your hard work, I think it's the greatest motivation to see your own progress and it gives you drive like nothing else.

    this should be stickied.

    but yet i fear even if it was, it'd be overlooked and wouldnt stop people from posting 'but my situation is different, i need inspiration!'

Sick post Lilnebo, fucking sick post and a great effort towards the community.. hopefully cleaning up 'some' of the daily-cry-outs about loss of motivation or inspiration etc.

Maybe you should've posted in the lounge, since thats where all people hang around these days : /

    Thanks lilnebo. I was planning to create such thread but this one is much better than the one I would do. I'll try to post some new good stuff new if I find it.

    but yet i fear even if it was, it'd be overlooked and wouldnt stop people from posting 'but my situation is different, i need inspiration!'
    Yeah. It seems like all they need is individual treatment.

    You rock! I'm currently a little over whelmed with too much inspiration, but I'm going to dig through some of those links when I get home. Great effort! I think that's worth a thousand times more than mindlessly giving someone a hand out.

    Also your effort inspired me to take an interest and do some research on the holiday. I'm going to make a food donation to my local shelter/pantry on my way home today

    am i the only one that gets all mad at the motivation threads?..lol
    inspiration i don't mind so much but, motivation?

    i hope im not comming off as a snob, but its really baaaad form to complain about ones own laziness. ..its not cute
    and it is devaluating the Art discussion forum, it seems like the majority of this forum is composed of these threads.

    i think if this is made into a sticky id would be great ....a quick place to refer them all .

    J Wilson: Wow man thats awesome!
    Ilaekae: i really hope you did would be awesome, its a great experince
    Kingshaj: no your not, but its not because they want to just annoy people but more because of their lack of knowledge about the whole subject. If everyone knew you dont even need motivation that much they wouldn't be posting all those threads, So lets just cross our fingers and hope this helps them and every other member of CA who doesn't start a thread when they feel down because well all do.
