“In my experience, there is only one motivation, and that is desire. No reasons or principle contain it or stand against it.”
— Jane Smiley
What do you desire for your life?
Freedom? How do you define freedom?
Success? What does success look like?
Money? How much money is “enough”?
Spend time defining your desire.
Write the desire down. Be specific — study it — put it somewhere you can see it everyday.
This desire becomes your motivation, the reason you fight the good fight.
If you have lost your desire, it’s time to make a change.
Life is too short, business is too hard, relationships are too fragile to continue to drudge toward an unwanted or undefined goal.
