Get yourself started

Whatever task you’re avoiding is not as difficult or unpleasant as you’ve imagined it to be. Do yourself a favor, and get it done.

Stop wasting all the energy and creativity you’re putting into fighting against the effort. Direct that energy into productive action.

You have the power to get yourself started. You have the power to immediately jump beyond your reluctance, your doubts, your excuses.

You control your mind, and your mind directs your efforts. Decide right now to put that power to good use.

No matter what you do or what you neglect to do, the time in this day will pass quickly. Choose to fill that time with worthwhile effort.

Push yourself into a productive, effective, action-oriented state. Get yourself started, get the work done, and make this a day of satisfaction and achievement.

— Ralph Marston
