* Monday's Daily Inspirational Quote "I am always doing that which I can not do, in order that I may learn how to do it." -- Picasso
Yes, this is a call for you to begin the working week like you mean to go on, and that's by challenging yourself in some way:
- The challenges could come from finally getting round to beginning (or ending) that project you keep hiding away from
- It could be about asking for specific training to develop a new expertise
- It could simply be a matter of joining a new evening class, after work is over
* Tuesday's Inspirational Quote
"Motivation gets you going but habit gets you there." -- Zig Ziglar
Tuesday is the day after Monday. And what I mean by that is that it's an odd day, an innocuous day. Sometimes, anyway. However, Tuesday could be a great day of 'continuation' - a day to consolidate on what was achieved on Monday, to stay motivated.
* Wednesday's Daily Quote
"What does a thought look like? Just look around you, right now... to see yours." -- Mike Dooley
Hmm, quite often we treat Wednesday as the mid-part of a week that seems to be never-ending. (Well, we do if we have the wrong mindset to time spent at work, anyway.)
Maybe, instead, choose today to look around you, at the people and objects that you choose to surround yourself with. And wonder why you made those choices. Hmm, just wonder...
* Thursday's Funny Inspirational Quote
"If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving definitely isn't for you" -- Unknown
Seriously, it's important to take good care of the work (and play) that you do, to make sure you do your best. And making mistakes is never fun, especially if you're a skydiver. But making mistakes is not (usually) the end of the world. So that's why - for Thursday - you get a bonus daily inspirational quote...
"If you can't make a mistake, you can't make anything." -- Marva Collins
* Friday's Free Inspirational Quote
"Use what talent you possess: the woods would be very silent if no birds sang there except those that sang best" -- Henry Van Dyke
There can be no arguing that the world is full of talented, unique individuals - 6 plus billion of 'em to be precise. And each of these people have unique talents and skills.
Yes, some of those people (and some of those talents) may be more obviously 'talented', but each person's contribution is important.
Your contribution is important. It is.
* Saturday & Sunday's Daily Inspirational Quotes
"In order to discover new lands, one must be willing to lose sight of the shore for a very long time." -- Unknown
The weekend can be a time of rest, and a time of play, but it should also be a time to 'lose sight of the shore' once in a while. Remember, we work to live not the other way around.
Also remember the words of one Napoleon Hill, when it comes to how you enjoy yourself:
"What ever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve." -- Napoleon Hill
Yes, I'm sure Napoleon wasn't thinking about the use of leisure time when he said this, but I say 'why not'.
I say the week is to be fully enjoyed, whether working or playing, and the mind should be equally 'adventurous' in both areas of a person's life.
* Bonus inspirational quotation
Here's a bonus daily inspirational quote that can be pretty much used any day of the week, whether at work or play.
"You can't teach anybody anything, only make them realize the answers are already inside them." -- Galileo
Don't believe anyone who tells you otherwise.
You know more than you realise.
And you can achieve more than you realise, too.
Each and every week.
Just *believe*, and add a daily inspirational quote to the mix, and away you go...
