147: On Motivation with René Brooks

“Motivation is something that you need over an arc of time, it’s not necessarily a destination, it’s something you need to bring along with you on your journey, more like a toothbrush.”

This week on Embracing Intensity, I finally get to share an edited part of our conversation on Motivation with René Brooks of Black Girl, Lost Keys!

On Motivation with René Brooks

In this episode:

  • How motivation is part of the bigger picture, not day to day feelings.

  • Moving through fatigue and burnout with motivation.

  • Letting go of the idea that everything is a top priority.

  • How we tend to reward work with more work.

  • The importance of self-reward.
