There are times when a quote I see really grabs me. It could be that it hit a nerve in me or was relevant to what I was going through. I will sometimes write it down on a sticky note to remember it. 3 Motivation quotes I use everyday are:
This quote speaks to me because of how quickly time goes by and how easy it is to miss the little things in life. It gets me to slow down when I get too busy and preoccupied. It is on a wall hanging in our front room, a gift I bought for my husband. My previous post told the story of this gift and what it means to me.
This quote speaks to me because I have a tendency to procrastinate. The easiest thing to do is NOT do something. I read it in a LifeHack.org article about “Time Management” quotes. I have a hard time getting started on projects because I convince myself that there will be a better time to do them or there is something else I need in order to get started. The reality is the only time I have is now and I have no idea what tomorrow will bring. I now convince myself to just get started on things and do what I can.
This quote speaks to me because I am a perfectionist at heart. When I work on something, I let all the thoughts overwhelm me with the various steps and things I need to do to get it done. I now tell myself, “Do something everyday to move forward.” Whether the action is perfect or not, or no matter how small the step, I just need to take it. This quote comes from a podcast I had listened to by Darren Rowse where he talked about the small things that are done each day to reach a goal. I now focus on getting through small things every day.
This blog is the result of my focus on these three quotes. It is something I wanted to do for a long time but always found a reason to NOT do it.
