Nobody knows who said this but I suspect Mark Manson made it up in his book The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F*ck.
In the story, he asks a prolific author how he managed to write 70 novels.
The author’s answer is simple: 200 shitty words a day.
That’s it. That’s the secret to motivation. The ‘secret’ to creating prolific work — and to success.
Motivation isn’t outside ourselves, it’s something we give to ourselves through doing.
If you want to get motivated, just do something; anything.
It could be as simple as making your bed.
Because when you take that one little step forwards and you’ll create momentum that makes the next step easier.
It doesn’t have to be perfect. It doesn’t even have to be good.
You just have to get it done.
And thanks for reading mine.
