It's better to have good habits you stick with every day. This is the key to getting things done. But we're all human. We sometimes ask, Why am I doing this? That's when a little kick of inspiration helps.
Inspiration shows you why the small tasks matter. They add up to your big goals. So if you're ever stuck or bored, inspiration helps you see the big picture.
The best inspiration feels like it's just for you. Focus offers a bunch of quotes like:
Amateurs sit and wait for inspiration, the rest of us just get up and go to work. —Stephen King
Action is the foundational key to all success. —Pablo Picasso
There is no substitute for hard work. —Thomas Edison
Journey of a thousand miles begins with one step. —Lao Tzu
If there is no wind, row. —Latin Proverb
