The act of doing allows you to do the thing that you want to be doing… What am words?There has to be a better way to say that.

Have you ever heard of the “Do Something” Principle? Mark Manson, the wonderful writer of “The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck” put it much better than I can. A lot of people think the best way to get work started is to get inspired (come here and look at my articles), which will lead to motivation (feel good about reading my articles), which will lead to the desired action (WRITING).

In reality, the best way might be a little different, at least according to Mark Manson. I totally agree with him, and it’s how I get everything I want or need to get done. It’s simple, but you won’t want to believe it. All we do is switch the order around a bit.

Start with your action (WRITING!!!), then you become inspired by the fact that you are writing (Wow! I’m writing? I can do this!), and then you become motivated to write more (I bet I can do a whole page today!). So in order to get inspired and motivated to write, you actually have to start writing. Sounds weird, but it works. Just take a seat at the keyboard and start typing. I guarantee your mind will start moving after a few minutes.

Here’s the full article if you’re interested:  MarkManson.Net: The “Do Something” Principle

Would you look at that? This one turned out to be fun AND informative. I tricked you. Also, despite this information, this blog can definitely inspire you. Enjoy :)
