Quotes by Oliver Burkeman  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“Who says you need to wait until you 'feel like' doing something in order to start doing it? The problem, from this perspective, isn't that you don't feel motivated; it's that you imagine you need to feel motivated. If you can regard your thoughts and emotions about whatever you're procrastinating on as passing weather, you'll realise that your reluctance about working isn't something that needs to be eradicated or transformed into positivity. You can coexist with it. You can note the procrastinatory feelings and act anyway.”
Oliver Burkeman, The Antidote: Happiness for People Who Can't Stand Positive Thinking

“Confronting the worst-case scenario saps it of much of its anxiety-inducing power. Happiness reached via positive thinking can be fleeting and brittle, negative visualization generates a vastly more dependable calm.”
Oliver Burkeman, The Antidote: Happiness for People Who Can't Stand Positive Thinking

“True security lies in the unrestrained embrace of insecurity - in the recognition that we never really stand on solid ground, and never can.”
Oliver Burkeman, The Antidote: Happiness for People Who Can't Stand Positive Thinking
