Different days


Different days require different strategies to get myself going.
Some days it takes gentle encouragement.
Some days an inspirational quote does the trick.
Some days I have to appeal to my vanity.
Some days I resort to subtle shaming.
Some days constant badgering must be employed.

Some days nothing works.

Here are some of the words I've tried:

Do one thing every day that you can be proud of.

Success is the sum of all the moments we choose to take action.

"When we bring what is within us out into the world, miracles happen.” 
– Ralph Waldo Emerson

Do something BIGGER. Do something BOLDER.

Life is messy. Not everything goes right, and that's OK.

Just fucking deal with shit!

"Work cures everything."
- Henri Matisse

Be a role model. Be an inspiration for your children.

This is your life - show up like you mean it.

"Action is the foundational key to all success."
- Pablo Picasso

Look to what you're afraid of to learn where you can grow.

Are you an artist or an administrator?

It's easy, it just takes a lot of hard work.
