Monday (and every other day of the week) Motivation

“Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal.”
- Henry Ford
A motive is an impulse that causes a person to act. Motivation is an internal process that makes a person move toward a goal. The key to motivation is understanding that you have the power to change both your expectations of yourself and the value placed on a task.

I offer you this, as a reminder: You are not alone.
