James Clear is the author of Atomic Habits.
His newsletter last week contained some profound points that I thought were worth spreading:
“Motivation often comes after starting, not before.
Action produces momentum.”
”We spend a lot of time talking about everything we have to do.
You have to finish 10 things at work. You have to exercise today. You have to cook dinner for your family.
Now, change one word in each sentence. You don’t “have” to. You “get” to.
You get to finish 10 things at work. You get to exercise today. You get to cook dinner for your family.
The right perspective transforms your burdens into opportunities.”
