Motivating Monday Motivation for the Week & Link Up! 3-4-13

Welcome to the Motivating Monday Link up at CEO of Me for this week! Each Monday I share a motivating though of my own, then you are welcome to link up your own motivational, inspirational, healthy living, household tips, ideas and any helpful family-friendly posts.

I read this quote this week: “Note to self: finding a cool quote and writing it in your journal is not a substitute for Getting. It. Done.” ~Betsy Cañas Garmon.  I know it’s ironic that I’m quoting a quote about well quotes, but stay with me here for a minute.

I am a quote junkie. I love reading motivational and thought provoking quotes, blog posts, articles and books. I believe staying motivated is important. Like Zig Ziglar said:  “People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it daily.” 

However, like the first quote said finding or getting motivated is only the first part. You have to actually take that motivation and apply it towards completing your tasks and projects.  This week I’m going to work on just getting things done! That may mean powering through on tasks when I don’t feel like it or getting up a little earlier or just focusing long enough to finish 1 project before starting another.


What about you? Are you a quote and motivation junkie like I am? Do you sometimes spend more time getting motivated than actually getting things done too?  I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments below?


Now it’s time for you to share and find some motivation and inspiration for our week ahead!  

Please feel free to add your family friendly posts to the linky below! Anything motivating, inspiring, household tip, recipe, craft or diy idea. Anything family friendly, but no giveaways, coupons or deals please. 

PLEASE DON’T link & run. Please visit a few other sites that linked up and comment or share their posts too.  We can all encourage and help each other succeed.

The linky will be open until Friday night.  I look forward to seeing your posts that you link up below. I also try to comment on, Tweet or Pin EVERY post that is linked up. :)

*While not required, I would appreciate if you would include the button or a text link back to this post in your post that you link up and/or if you would share this link up on your social media sites. Please use #motivatingmonday when tweeting. Thank you!

    I love quotes, and scriptures too. Especially when I’m down or frustrated, I always look for something that would cheer me up or inspire me to do better. It’s like someone understands what I am going through.
