I guess it's true that you needed to be inspired before you can move a bit faster. If you intend to go the extra mile, there has to be a reason for you to push harder. I went to a nice rural town yesterday and I am really impressed with its simplicity. The road signs are made by hand and not by machines. Sometimes it's so tiring to be in the city all the time. I think I am falling in love with this rural setting already and if I want to stay here longer, that should be enough motivation for me to push myself harder.
