5 motivational quotes to help you focus and get things done

As you are more than aware by now, I love a good quote! As such, for today’s post I have pulled together a selection of motivational quotes that I think really help to get your mindset in the right place to tackle things that you may have otherwise been procrastinating over for a while now.

Whether it be sorting out your photos into albums, organising your home, decluttering your inbox, or tackling that mountain of paperwork that’s threatening to create a mini landslide on the kitchen work surface any time now – just think how amazing you’ll feel when you get things done, finally!

After all – sometimes all we need to get started is a reason and an urgency for doing so – and focusing the mind with some words of wisdom definitely helps to put things into perspective.

So, why not find the quote that speaks the most to you today, and use it to create momentum in whatever you need to get done – by starting now, you are one step closer to the finish line….


motivational quotes“A year from now you will wish you had started today” – Karen Lamb

do something today that your future self will thank you for“Do something today that your future self will thank you for” – Unknown


i may not be there yet but i'm closer than i was yesterdayI may not be there yet but I’m closer than I was yesterday” – Unknown



If you wait for perfect conditions you'll never get anything done“If you wait for perfect conditions you’ll never get anything done” – Unknown

what is not started today is never finished tomorrow“What is not started today is never finished tomorrow! -Goethe

All of these quotes have a key theme running through them, and that’s regret.

You don’t want to look back and regret not having started something in years to come – whatever that something may be.

You could easily keep saying to yourself “if only I had done …….”, but that’s looking to the past in a negative way – using these quotes can help change your mindset into using the future positively to help spur you on – and that makes perfect sense to me!
