I have the following quotes in my notes. Sometimes they help to get back on track. They help me at times.

Allow yourself to be bored.

Time is more valuable than money.

Maximize what you do with your time, don’t waste it.

Discipline is choosing between what you want NOW and what you want MOST.

Impulse is the enemy of success.

Only spend time on what makes you BETTER or what makes you HAPPY.

Everything else is wasting time.

The greatest of all weaknesses is the fear of appearing weak

Ego can get in the way of improvement.

At some point, the pain of not doing it becomes greater than the pain of doing it.

Nobody is too busy, it’s just a matter of priorities.

Learn to fail, and keep failing to get better.
