Last week, did you jot down a plan to get you moving toward your dream or personal goals? If so, hopefully you found a plan helps you to organize your day, week or month. A key factor is if it motivates you to get things done.
Ideally, you put things on a To-Do list or mark steps on a calendar. A list of reminders can help move you forward. The key is not to let the To-Do list grow too long because it may be overwhelming and drain your motivation. Let's consider an easy way to bolster your motivation - use happiness. Here is a great quote to consider:
"Try to make at least one person happy every day. If you cannot do a kind deed, speak a kind word. If you cannot speak a kind word, think a kind thought. Count up, if you can, the treasure of happiness that you would dispense in a week, in a year, in a lifetime!"
-Lawrence G. Lovasik, American Clergyman and Author*
