Enough of “doing” is what leads to actualization of outcomes
You don’t actually do a project; you can only do action steps related to it. When enough of the right action steps have been taken, some situation will have been created that matches your initial picture of the outcome closely enough that you can call it “done.” – David Allen
Never wait. Get up and hustle.
Amateurs sit and wait for inspiration, the rest of us just get up and go to work. Stephen King
There is a difference between being busy and being productive. The real question is, what are you busy with?
Being busy does not always mean real work. The object of all work is production or accomplishment and to either of these ends there must be forethought, system, planning, intelligence, and honest purpose, as well as perspiration. Seeming to do is not doing. Thomas A. Edison
Whatever your passion is. Find it, and let it consume you.
In trying to find who you are, be less destructive and more constructive. Look at art or whatever your passion is and be productive. Nirrimi Joy Hakanson
Do what you love. Love what you do.
Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. Steve Jobs
Go that extra mile to plan. Go further to execute that plan.
Plans are nothing; planning is everything. Dwight D. Eisenhower
Because today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday. So make your “now” count, and look forward to tomorrow.
Tomorrow is the most important thing in life. Comes into us at midnight very clean. It’s perfect when it arrives and it puts itself in our hands. It hopes we’ve learned something from yesterday. John Wayne
Over thinking is the death of productivity.
If you spend too much time thinking about a thing, you’ll never get it done. Bruce Lee
Oops. A bit audacious but true. Patience is the key and all great things take time.
No matter how great the talent or efforts, some things just take time. You can’t produce a baby in one month by getting nine women pregnant. Warren Buffett
Nothing is more precious than being happy in the now. The true elixir of productivity. The end.
I enjoy writing, I enjoy my house, my family and, more than anything I enjoy the feeling of seeing each day used to the full to actually produce something. The end. Michael Palin
