I found an amazing quote today from the Free People blog (a daily favorite) about focusing on the purpose behind what you do. This is on my mind a lot lately, so I thought I'd share...along with a few other good get-you-going-on-Monday quotes and some quality music below!
Not only is it crucial to prioritize and streamline your daily/weekly schedule, but keeping a clear head and drive for why you're doing what you're doing keeps energy high and motivation up! It's easy to focus on the immediate outcome of the day-to-day (your work, workout, hobbies, etc.), but having the clarity and perspective - two of my favorite words - to see how those puzzle pieces of your life (career, relationships, health, etc.) are fitting together is a totally different story. It's often the most gratifying thing to evaluate and keep front of mind.
If you're feeling a little "off track," it's completely empowering and exciting to sit down with a cup of tea/coffee, crank some tunes and write out thoughts on where you are and where you want to be. Taking the time to be sure you're all set spiritually, emotionally and physically is worth every minute.
