“Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.” – Jim Ryun

Positive Quote: “Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.” – Jim Ryun

 

I see motivation as action and habit as repetition to sharpen our skills and reduce the need for motivation in that specific area.

 

The habits are what keep me going, from the breathing in and out, to the taking a few seconds to close my eyes and just be, to the sitting outside on the porch when the rain is coming down and just enjoying it. These habits are what help keep me sane and with a headful of hair.

 

I can’t imagine one without the other.

 

What do you think? When does the habit kick in to help ease the need for self motivation?

 

One book I recommend that discusses motivation in depth is Drive by Daniel Pink. It is always good to understand what motivates.

 

Have a marvelous Monday.
