How Far Can it Get Ya?

I am a firm believer in the power of doing, get it done, no better time than the present, and get your butt moving. But, on a rare occasion, it's difficult to get a task done when I lack the drive to make the first move.  I do find, however, that when I get enthused about a project time flies and the job gets done.

What does it take to get enthused? Find something good about whatever you need to do. Maybe it's a word or a color, you are doing it for someone else, or the fact it won't get done unless you do it. And then the next step is just that: step, move, get going. Your reward will be accomplishment, and that can take you far.
Enthusiasm is one of the most powerful engines of success. When you do a thing, do it with all your might. Put your whole soul into it. Stamp it with your own personality. Be active, be energetic, be enthusiastic and faithful, and you will accomplish your object. Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.

- Ralph Waldo Emerson
