Two thought provoking quotes that caught my interest today, one on finding self-motivation on bad days and the other on the importance of clear goals – or rather the risks you run in not having them.
“If you don’t take the time to get really clear about exactly what it is you’re trying to accomplish, then you’re forever doomed to spend your life achieving the goals of those who do.” Steve Pavlina from The Power of Clarity
How true, in pretty much any area of life – in work, in business, in politics, in relationships…you name it. The people who are prepared to put their ideas and goals out there and really push for them to be implemented are the ones who are most likely achieve what they want. If you don’t even tell yourself, let alone anyone else, what you’re trying to do you will by default have decisions made for you by those with the clearest vision or loudest voice.
“Of course it would be hard. But I remembered what my nurseryman grandfather used to say when I didn’t want to go to school: half the work in the world was done by people who didn’t feel so good today.” Rollo Romig from Confessions of Ramadan Rookie
Motivation to get up and get on with things even when you really don’t feel up to it. Sometimes it just has to be done, especially when you work on your own.
