No matter how hard you try, there are times when you just won’t be able to motivate yourself. You’ll stare at your long to-do list for a while then take a nap. Motivation is so elusive, but we all know it’s the key to accomplishing our goals. So how can you stay motivated when you can’t find time to work on your personal projects?
Until they invent a motivation pill, we’ll just have to harness it from many different sources. Listening to a podcast is one of them! Few things are better than being told a great story! It’s the undeniable appeal of podcasts. When done right, they can teach and inspire us. With so many options out there, choosing the right ones can be a hassle. So I researched a few and here are some of my favorites:
Just as the name suggests, this show interviews people with two or more inboxes. That is, our fellow multipotentialites who are engaged in different creative pursuits while juggling a full-time job. There’s a lot of knowledge to gain from these conversations – from time management tips to career-boosting advice. The other cool thing is that it ends with the “2 truths and a lie” game so you get to learn random facts about a particular industry.
Similar to Two Inboxes, Prologue Profiles features intimate talks with millennial side hustlers. From these shared experiences, you will feel inspired to keep working and learn how to stay consistent with your creative projects.

In his podcast, Pat speaks to a variety of experts and asks them pertinent questions because he wants to make sure his listeners take something away from each episode.
