We notice people who do great things. However, it is easy to forget that they were not doing great things when they started.

So until the really great stuff comes along, do the not-so-great stuff.

Doing the not-so-great stuff can lead to the great stuff, especially when you do it well and do it with passion. People notice that.

Doing nothing, on the other hand, pretty much always leads to nowhere.

So, in the absence of great things to do, what are the not-so-great things you could do instead?

If you are avoiding some not-so-great things, is the reason low motivation?

Here are some tips to motivate yourself, and a hard-hitting quote from Andrew Carnegie who definitely did GREAT things.

My best wishes, Paul
