You know in all the motivation postings I’ve put up, I fail to mention people. So this one is dedicated to all the people that motivated me throughout my life.
We all have them. We have families. We have friends. We have husbands and wives, besties, and even colleagues at work or in our particular profession.
Two of my biggest motivators are David Allen and Stephen Covey. David Allen wrote the book Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress Free Productivity. Stephen Covey wrote the book The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. They are both terrific books that I refer to all the time.
My wife is also a motivator. I want to do well for her. When I was working, I was motivated by my fellow soldiers or colleagues at work. I wanted to do my part on the team.
Who has been your motivator? Any books, any songs, any poetry, or artists that get you going? What about your family and friends. Is there anyone you can think of that really drives you to do what you do?
If you’re like me, you have had plenty of people who have added value to your life, simply because they motivated you to do something you didn’t think you could do, or they showed you something that made a huge difference in your life. For me, Allen and Covey were those people. I didn’t know them, other than from reading their books, but boy, they impacted how I do things today.
Well, that’s all I got for now! Have a great Monday, all!
Until next time…
