EP 1: The Myth Of Motivation: Do It Anyway


“When I was in that inertia of wanting to do absolutely nothing, I realized no amazing stroke of motivation was going to fall into my lap.” 

Though she is a professional organizer and business strategist, Corinne Morahan is like a lot of us: sometimes she would rather sit on the couch and do nothing than do the hard things on her daily list. So while she can’t provide you with motivation —no one can, and it’s fleeting anyway—Corinne is kicking off the Get Organized For Good podcast with some inspiration–and more importantly a strategy-- to tackle your own to-dos! 

It starts with a simple yet powerful mantra: Not in the mood, do it anyway. Corinne reveals three questions you should ask yourself each day to prioritize your to-do list. She’ll show you how to anticipate and outwit your internal negotiations and excuses before they get the best of you. Everyone’s hard stuff is different. She walks us through her own internal dialogue which she engages with every day when faced with working out—-and how she gets it done anyway. 

Adulting is hard, but with self-knowledge and a plan, Corinne can help you create the balance between productivity and truly restful and rejuvenating downtime free from the stress and shame of unfinished tasks. It’s the first step toward creating a more expansive and beautiful life. 


  • “We know that motivation may come, for some of us it may indeed come, at some point. It may fall in your lap if you’re lucky enough. But it really is so fleeting, even for the most motivated of us, and it is oh so unreliable.” (3:53 | Corinne Morahan)
  • “That laying around doing nothing is not actually restful and rejuvenating when you have a huge to-do list hanging over your head. And instead of really enjoying that down time, I was beating myself up for not doing more or stressing out about all the things I had to get done.” (2:47 | Corinne Morahan)
  • “Every morning, almost every morning when I wake up I think ‘Oh, well I could snooze for 30 more minutes and then I’d be 30 minutes more rested…’ Guess what? In 30 minutes, I’m still going to be tired, I’m not going to want to get up, but then I also won’t have done my workout.” (7:35 | Corinne Morahan)
  • “Here is the thing about being an adult: We have a lot of control over our lives in some ways. We can eliminate the things that bring us down, we can create a beautiful life that we love. But if you are someone like me that inherently loves to do nothing, you’re going to have to do a lot of things throughout the day that you don’t want to do, and you’re going to have to figure out how you are going to combat that inertia of doing nothing so that you can show up in the world as who you want to be.” (9:51 | Corinne Morahan) 
  • “I really want us all to have downtime to do nothing, but I want us to be able to enjoy it without shame or without a lingering to-do list.” (11:01 | Corinne Morahan)


Ready to do the damn thing already?

I know that motivation is fleeting and is oh-so-unreliable. We need to train ourselves to DO IT ANYWAY. Even when it’s hard. Even when we’re not in the mood. And this journal is my gift to you to help you do just that. Get yours here!
