Motivation

Motivation

Motivation is not a switch. Motivation is a flow. 

If you can create a self sustaining motivation engine, you’ll not only be able to find more meaning and purpose in your life, but you’ll be able to enjoy every minute of what you’re doing, which will make your roles and responsibilities less of a chore.

The essence of motivation

Every choice has a price, but when we are motivated, it is easier to bear the inconvenience of action than the pain of remaining the same.

In other words, at some point,  it becomes more painful to not do the work than to actually do it.

Don‘t set SCHEDULE build RITUAL ...

How do some of the most prolific artists in the world motivate themselves? They don't merely set SCHEDULE, they build RITUALS.

It’s a simple act, but doing it the same way each morning habitualizes it and makes it repeatable . It reduces the chance of skipping it or do it differently.
