“You can’t depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus.”

– Mark Twain

A bit of Twain-tastic advice. When wandering in the wilderness of work, it’s not about seeing what’s right in front of you, but visualizing where you want to go. So, dust off that imagination and set your sights on success. 

Remember, it’s not about attempting to do everything at once. It’s about zeroing in on what matters, just like a photography enthusiast capturing that perfect shot. Focus, my friends, is where the magic happens!

“Do something today that your future self will thank you for.”

“Only put off until tomorrow what you are willing to die having left undone.”

– Pablo Picasso

A bit dramatic – Picasso style, but it gets the point across, right? If you wouldn’t want it as your eternal cliffhanger, it’s time to buckle down and button up that to-do list. 

“The secret of getting ahead is getting started.”

– Mark Twain

Oh, Twain, you’ve hit the nail on the head. Starting is oftentimes the hardest part. Just remember that every marathon begins with a single step. So, take that step, no matter how small it may feel. 

“Productivity is never an accident. It is always the result of a commitment to excellence, intelligent planning, and focused effort.”

– Paul J. Meyer

Let’s end this zen moment with Meyer’s wisdom. You need a sprinkle of planning, a dash of effort, and a whole lot of commitment to cook up a productive day. Think of it as your recipe for success when working from home. Roll up your sleeves and start cooking! 

There you have it, folks! Four power-packed quotes to smack procrastination right in the face. Remember, tomorrow is just another name for the pile of work you were too lazy to do today. Now get up, make a plan, and show procrastination who’s boss!

Quotes to Help You Stay Organized

Keeping yourself organized while working from home can sometimes feel a bit like herding cats (and I’m not talking about your actual cats who insist on making appearances in your Zoom calls). Staying organized is crucial to maintaining your productivity and sanity, and of course, it helps when you can actually find that important document on your cluttered desk. So, here are some insightful quotes to help you stay focused on the task, remind you of the importance of organization, and maybe even inspire a chuckle or two. 

“For every minute spent organizing, an hour is earned.”

– Benjamin Franklin

Good old Ben Franklin’s wisdom never misses the mark, does it? By investing just a little time in getting things organized, you’re not only ensuring smoother workflow but also saving a boatload of time in the long run. So, roll up those sleeves and arrange those files, folks! 

“Clutter is nothing more than postponed decisions.”

– Barbara Hemphill

Isn’t that just a truth bomb right there? If your workspace looks like Jackson Pollock had a field day on it, then chances are, you’ve got a lot of decisions ‘postponed’. It’s high time to declare “Clutter bankruptcy” and start fresh! 

“There’s no secret to balance. You just have to feel the waves.”

– Frank Herbert

Organizing isn’t all about color-coded files and neatly stacked papers. It’s about finding the balance that works for you.  You’ve got to surf those work-from-home waves like a pro, dude! 

“Organizing is a journey, not a destination.”

– Unknown

Remember, Rome wasn’t built in a day, and neither will your perfectly organized workspace. It’s an ongoing process, and each step you take towards the organization is a victory. So don’t stress if it isn’t picture-perfect immediately, just keep going! 

The key to a successful organization is understanding that it’s a work in progress. So take a deep breath, smile at the chaos, and just get started with one small step. Whether that’s organizing your inbox, decluttering your desk, or scheduling your tasks, every little bit counts. Stay organized, stay efficient!

Our friend Maya came up with this pearl of wisdom, and it’s a corker! Even on those days when you feel like your creative juices have run dry, know that creativity is a well that never runs dry—it only grows deeper the more you draw from it. So, push through that brick wall and keep creating! 

“Curiosity about life in all of its aspects I think, is still the secret of great creative people.”

– Leo Burnett

Now this quote perfectly captures the essence of creativity, doesn’t it?

Quotes for a Healthy Mind: The Importance of Self-Care

‘re working from home, it’s easy to let work-life balance slide out of sight, ain’t that right? But remember, self-care ain’t just about face masks and bubble baths (though, who’d say no to that?) Here are some quotes that underline the importance of looking after your mental shipshape while working remotely.

“Almost everything will work again if you unplug it for a few minutes, including you.”

– Anne Lamott

Just like how your laptop functions better after a restart, you too could benefit from a moment of pause. Unplugging doesn’t necessarily mean a 2-week vacation (though wouldn’t that be nice?). It could be as simple as stepping away from your desk, doing some stretches or sipping on a leisurely cuppa joe.

“Self-care is giving the world the best of you, instead of what’s left of you.”

When you’re feeling good and mentally fresh, it’s easier to do excellent work. Remember, you can’t pour from an empty cup, and burnout doesn’t look good on anybody!

“The more you feed your mind with positive thoughts, the more you can attract great things into your life.”

– Roy T. Bennett

Don’t be mistaken, my dear friends. Bennett’s quote isn’t about attracting a large pizza to your doorstep (although, wouldn’t it be wonderful if it works for that too?). He’s saying give your noggin, yes that grey matter up top, a hearty diet of positivity. Good vibes in, great workout! 

“Optimism is a happiness magnet. If you stay positive, good things and good people will be drawn to you.”

“It’s not the strength of the body that counts, but the strength of the spirit.”

“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.”

“The only thing standing between you and your goal is the story you keep telling yourself as to why you can’t achieve it.”

– Jordan Belfort

Don’t be your own worst enemy now! While it’s tempting to binge-watch that new Netflix show, remember that growth comes from stepping out of your comfort zone (and yes, this includes getting off the couch). 

“The mind, once stretched by a new idea, never returns to its original dimensions.”

– Ralph Waldo Emerson

Embrace the stretch, folks! The beauty of personal growth is that it opens your mind to new ideas and possibilities. Suddenly, that home-office seems less of a confinement and more of a limitless hub of opportunities, doesn’t it? 

“The future belongs to those who learn more skills and combine them in creative ways.”

– Robert Greene

Juggling your work life and home chores can make you feel like a circus artist. But hey, look at all the multi-tasking skills you’re picking up! As Greene says, the future belongs to the learners, the multi-doers, the stretchy-pants wearers like yourself!

And hey, here’s another one to keep you rolling through the rough waves of change: 

“Adaptability is about the powerful difference between adapting to cope and adapting to win.”

– Max McKeown

So, no matter what changes you’re navigating – be it shifting deadlines, changing client requirements, or even an unexpected power cut – remember to adapt to win, not just cope! Give change a high-five, and adapt like the champ you are!

In the words of George Bernard Shaw: 

“Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.”
