Monday Mottoes – #51

motivation-98015We brush our teeth, we walk the dog, we grab something to eat. We field phone calls, we send e-mails, and we meet in live or video-conferencing. Every day, much is accomplished simply by putting one foot in front of the other.

But what about the “optional” areas of life? You know, all of the nice-yet-not-necessities that become crowded by the tyranny of the urgent. How do we make time to do those things that we’re not convinced we have sufficient time for—maybe connecting with our spouse, doing a special activity with a child, reading the Bible, b7f288e1d57922c3890bf81dcabfa3a6visiting an elderly friend or relative, or exercising for optimum health?

Why can’t we approach this bucket list with the same steady step? Which brings us to today’s motto:

Do what it takes to get yourself pumped. Maybe cut out some pictures of goals and aims, be around meaningful mentors, read and research to learn more about whatever’s needed. And then do it.

Just do it, whether you feel like it or not. Today’s the day, so seize it.

Happy Monday, everyone!
