It can be challenging to stay motivated, especially when there is so much to do.
Anytime I find myself procrastinating, turning to these three simple quotes helps get me back on track:
“Focus On The Step In Front Of You, Not The Whole Staircase.” – Unknown
It can be easy to get extremely overwhelmed by a large project or a long to-do list. Being overwhelmed makes it incredibly easy to procrastinate.
Instead of focusing on the entire task ahead, shift your focus just to the next small step that needs to be taken.
Taking just one tiny step at a time in the right direction is not overwhelming, and focusing on just that one step makes getting started much easier.
“Don’t Wait. The Time Will Never Be Just Right.” – Napoleon Hill
The stars are never going to be all aligned.
All of the pieces are never going to be perfectly in place.
Deciding to wait until everything is perfect or you feel like doing it will not work.
The perfect time to get started is right now.
“The Secret Of Getting Ahead Is Getting Started.” – Mark Twain
Getting started is almost always the hardest part.
Once you get the ball rolling and build momentum, it’s much easier to keep going.
Once you get getting started over with, you’re going to feel so much better. It feels much better to be taking action rather than just thinking about it or worrying about it.
These three simple quotes have helped me overcome procrastination so many times. I hope they are as helpful for you as they have been for me!
