  • Getting Motivated Again

    Instagram- @timelycareers



    Staying motivated: 

    When I started this podcast, I had one goal in mind, I wanted to learn something new every day. For the most part I was, I’ve learnt a lot from the guests that have been on this show. As the podcast progressed, I became more and more concerned about the amount of listens the podcast was getting and what other people had to say about it. This craving of others acceptance started to demotivate me; I wasn’t doing what I wanted to do anymore I was doing what I thought other people wanted me to do. This complicated the podcast and became overwhelming. It’s nobody’s fault, it’s my fault. It’s easy to get caught up. and I did get caught up. this led to 6 months of rethinking the podcast and trying to make it into something that it wasn’t meant to be. I wanted the podcast to teach me something and teach the audience. 

    With all of this demotivation going on in my life, I started to research some ways to remotivate myself and get back on the podcast. Covid-19 has been the biggest factor into my demotivation, after the 3rd lockdown, I completely gave up on most things I enjoyed doing, I was burnt out and for the most part still am. in the next few minutes I’m going to talk about what can help to regain motivation. 

    Let’s start with the most common one setting goals. 

    You’ve probably heard this a million times, but it actually works, you should set daily goals. Not unrealistic goals that will overwhelm you. But like simple goals, like make my bed, walk my dog, go for a 2km run, finish my homework, do 30 mins of coding, anything, as long as it is achievable. Trust me this will change your whole day; you will feel more accomplished by the end of it. You should make these goals more public, maybe by putting them on your Instagram story, writing them down, texting them to a friend, when you make them public you are more likely to accomplish them. Let’s take me for example, I set a goal today, which was to make a 

    Finding your purpose, now this is more of a broader perspective. When you find your purpose in life everything becomes easier. You’ll know what you need to do in order to get to where you want. As Marcus Aurelius famously said, I have to go to work- as a human being. What do I have to complain of, if I’m going to do what I was born for – the things I was brought into the world to do? Or is this what I was created for? To huddle under the blanket and stay warm. His words have never been truer, before I started working most of my days consisted of watching Netflix and staying warm. Breaking this barrier is hard, as when we as humans become comfortable, we tend to stay there, we become consumed by capitalism and consumerism, so far deep that some of don’t even realize. Finding a purpose in life is a true blessing. 

    When you have found your purpose in life you should start counting on yourself, as the great philosopher Marcus Aurelius once said “turn your desire to store, Quench your appetites. Keep your mind centered on itself.

    Start building a long-term plan, if you’re in university start planning your all your courses you need to graduate, start setting small goals you want to achieve by the end of the year and if you don’t reach your goals, readjust them. Think about what you want to do after you graduate, it doesn’t need to be something definitive, as life goes on things change and the path you chose in university might be completely different than your job. 

    Also start building short term plans. Like if you have a goal to buy a car by the end of the year, what steps do you need to take in order to afford the car? Write it down, put it some place where you can see it daily. Being committed to the goal will be your key to success. No matter what challenges arise never give up, if you miss the moon at least you’ll hit the stars. 

    Start showing up every day. Start doing stop listening to other people, just start doing a little every day, the more and more you practise the better you will become even if it’s only 1 minute a day, that’s 1 minute more than you would have been doing. I always hear people saying coding is hard, its not, its not hard at all. Its like learning a new language. If you practice a little every day you can easily learn it. As the famous Marcus Aurelius puts it, you must build your life action by action, and be content if each one achieves its goal as far as possible- and no one can keep you from this. 

    Even after you have created a plan 95% of us will fail this includes me. the problem is we’re not being consistent. If you code for 10 hours a month for one day a month, that’s no good. You will have more success coding for 10-30 mins a day for a month. The best way to stay consistent is to print out a calendar and mark down everyday you complete your task. Place the calendar in a place where you can see it every day. 

    And this is as far as my motivation took me, I wrote and researched this episode in less than 2 hours. Which is impressive considering that I haven’t written or uploaded an episode in months. This was all thanks to the teachings of Marcus Aurelius.

  • Female in STEM- Airin Avery

    In this weeks episode we interview Airin Avery who is a PhD student at UCLA.

    Follow Airin and her journey:


    short bio from her website (https://www.airinaveryfitness.com/my-fitness-journey):

    I started my fitness journey as a collegiate athlete at the State University of New York at Oneonta. As a freshman in college joining the team I had never really lifted weights seriously before. When they made us do our team lifts, at first I absolutely hated it, all I wanted to do was play volleyball and I didn’t understand why we had to lift. But this funny thing happened, the more I lifted, the more I started to enjoy it. Not only did my physical abilities improve but I was also excited to notice new muscles and veins that I never knew I had before. And that’s when my love for fitness began.

    As a sophomore in college in 2015, I decided to take my fitness to the next level by competing in my first NPC bikini competition. It was this milestone that really cultivated my love for the fitness industry even more. Stepping on stage showcasing my hard earned work was a feeling like no other. I immediately became hooked on the sport of bodybuilding. Since 2015 I have competed in 7 shows, qualifying for nationals at 3 and I plan to compete in 3 shows next year including nationals. In addition to the bodybuilding shows, I have also competed in a powerlifting meet and currently still play volleyball for UCLA’s club beach volleyball team. I think its safe to say I am a little obsessed with fitness.

    Thanks for listening, I'll be back next week with a new episode
