“Do not wait: the time will never be ‘just right’. Start where you stand, and work with whatever tools you may have at your command and better tools will be found as you go along.”

Your thoughts don't define you; your actions do

Action gets results. Results are what you want, not just ideas.

Don't spend all your time thinking about everything you can improve. Until you start doing what needs to be done, you're not really making a difference.

Many people want to do well at work. You may risk and do much but will have nothing to show for it.

You won't be able to do everything this week or this month. That is okay. As long as you are consistent and stick to the process. It's important to take time out and ask how you could have done differently to achieve the same results.

The biggest hurdle is to take that first step. You have everything you need to make an impact in the world if you can push the reasons aside why you should not start now.

Use what you have right now where you are and just start. Watch the magic of getting things done.

Sometimes you can feel like you're always working against the clock, and rearranging plans and tasks to meet deadlines. When you do take time to relax, you feel guilty.

Taking breaks refreshes your mind and allows you to come back to your task with renewed energy and a sense of purpose.

The Akrasia Effect

Resistance towards what can help us progress is something human beings are experiencing for centuries. Philosophers call this extremely active and relentless force Akrasia.

Akrasia is the barrier between you and a better version of you. When we set plans, deadlines and commit towards a goal(like planning to wake up at 5 am), it is Akrasia that prevents us from following through.

Destination Goals

While we set our personal goals, we make the common mistake of setting a 'destination goal', focusing on the end result,  without considering the hardships and daily challenges.

When a few hindrances and setbacks come, we are easily abandoning the set goals too.
