I’m a bibliophile. I love the written word and all the wonderful and amazing stories that are out there.  I find comfort in reading.  It calms my scattered thoughts (unless it’s giving me new ideas) and allows me to relax after a long day.

I thought it would be really fun to share some of my favourite quotes that I turn to when I need a little motivation to keep ongoing.  For me, when it comes to building new time management systems, these four quotes can be just what I need to keep myself moving forward when I really don’t feel like it.  While they are not strictly time management quotes, I think they fit well with what we’re trying to do during this series.

I had no idea how I was going to share them at first.  And then I had one of those lightbulb moments – why not make them into printables?  This way you can use them how you would like to.

  • In your planner as dividers or just reminders here and there that you CAN do this
  • Print and frame if you want to use them somewhere in your home or office
  • Hang one on your fridge or bathroom mirror so you can see it daily

However you come up with using them (or not) is totally up to you.  I just wanted to share them all with you.

As always, to snag a copy of any of our printables simple click the pic of the ones you would like.

And last, but not least, one of my all-time favourite quotes.  I don’t know why, but this one really speaks to me.  I think it is because I tend to be a little impulsive and want to jump right in when most often small steps following a plan is the best way to get things done.

I hope these help inspire you in some small way.  Do you have a favourite saying or quote that helps motivate or inspire you?  I’d love to hear what it is.  Where you find your inspiration and motivation?  Drop me a line in the comments and let me know.
