Review on How to Get and Stay MotivatedMotivation can be simply defined as a general willingness to do something.
Doing something, aka taking action, is the essence of motivation. Every choice has a price, but when we are motivated, it is easier to bear the inconvenience of action than the pain of remaining the same. Somehow we cross a mental threshold which tells us that it becomes more painful to not do the work than to actually do it.
Motivation is often the result of action, not the cause of it. Getting started, even in very small ways, is a form of active inspiration that naturally produces momentum. You don't need much motivation once you've started a behavior. Nearly all of the friction in a task is at the beginning. After you start, progress occurs more naturally. In other words, it is often easier to finish a task than it was to start it in the first place.
So, how do some of the most prolific achievers in the world motivate themselves? They don't merely set schedules, they build rituals; this means they make motivation a habit.
