Key Ideas

Motivation from within

We may be inspired by other people’s stories, but the greatest motivation will always come from within.

You will need a strong conviction or internal driving force in order to build a life of success. That drive can only stem from what’s important to you, what is relevant in your life, and what affects you in a profound way.

Motivation and action

Motivation without action is simply hype. Unless you do something every day that brings you closer towards your goals, you will not accomplish anything at all.

Nobody ever motivated their way towards their dreams. They acted because of their motivation and were able to reach their version of success.

Wanting to control everything

By procrastinating, you hold the most control over whatever task you’re working on. However, this also means, obviously, that that particular task isn’t being done.

Seeing a task as one big project

Almost everything we do can be broken down into little manageable parts.

Take, for instance, the laundry. If the laundry seems like a daunting task to you, break it down into steps. Collect all your dirty clothes. Separate colors and whites. Put your clothes on a wash cycle. Put them in the dryer. Fold them.

Being a perfectionist

It can be tempting to put things off or delay completing tasks simply because you’re worried about the outcome being less than perfect.

Just remember that it’s okay if things don’t turn out exactly how you had them in your head.

Go from Dreamer to Do-er

Use the WOOP strategy for achieving goals:

  • Wish: What do you dream of achieving in the future?
  • Outcome: What form will that result take?
Wish (But Don’t Stop There)

Everything starts with a wish. But don't transform that into fantasy.

When you fantasize, your brain thinks you’ve actually achieved your goal. So rather than ramping up, motivation dials back.

See A Specific Outcome

Be specific about the form your wish should take.

For example: If a "better work-life balance" is your wish, your outcome  could be “No work on weekends."
