Louisa May Alcott
“The humblest tasks get beautified if loving hands do them.”

Diane Wolkstein
“With good reason, love's messengers, Eros and Kama, are armed with bows and long-distance arrows. No being, god or mortal, can choose love. Love comes despite ourselves; and then, if we have not already done so, we have the task of becoming our selves so we may welcome love.”
Diane Wolkstein, First Love Stories: From Isis and Osiris to Tristan and Iseult

Jesse Andrews
“I guess I was actually sort of grateful that someone else was taking over my life. I mean, I'm obviously pretty terrible at managing my own life, so it was nice to know that it was in good hands. But also it was nice to have all these concrete tasks to do and be sort of distracted and consumed by them. It kept me from thinking about every depressing and weird thing that was going on at that time.”
Jesse Andrews, Me and Earl and the Dying Girl

Debasish Mridha
“Every morning is bright, beautiful, and gorgeous like the sun, but we can't see it because we are blinded by day to day tasks.”

“J'ai un but, une tâche, disons le mot, une passion. Le métier d'écrire en est une violente et presque indestructible."

[Letter to Jules Boucoiran, 4 March 1831]”
George Sand, Correspondance

Daniel H. Pink
“Motivation 1.0 presumed that humans were biological creatures, struggling to obtain our basic needs for food, security and sex.

Motivation 2.0 presumed that humans also responded to rewards and punishments. That worked fine for routine tasks but incompatible with how we organize what we do, how we think about what we do, and how
we do what we do. We need an upgrade.

Motivation 3.0, the upgrade we now need, presumes that humans also have a drive to learn, to create, and to better the world.”
Daniel H. Pink, Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us

“Keeping a journal, whether it is a food journal, gratitude journal, dream journal, or one of your daily musings, can have a tremendous impact on your life. It puts whatever issue we focus on in the spotlight. It keeps us accountable. It may show us patterns or habits we want to change. It may show us a truth we have been hiding from. Journaling is an extremely powerful tool. Yes, it takes a little time and effort to do. You're well-being is well worth the effort, especially when you are trying to make a change. Some of the greatest changes, insights and progress I've made were when I exercised the discipline to keep a journal. Have you tried it? Do you use journaling as a tool to help yourself?”
Akiroq Brost

Elizabeth Alexander
“I have not yet learned to use our television DVR. One of the points of marriage is that you split labor. In the olden days that meant one hunted and one gathered; now it means one knows where the tea-towels are kept and the other knows how to program the DVR, for why should we both have to know?”
Elizabeth Alexander, The Light of the World

Gretchen Rubin, Better Than Before: Mastering the Habits of Our Everyday Lives

Israelmore Ayivor
“Don’t cluster tasks on your way. Some tasks would definitely have to be postponed to the next day. You can’t do all things in one day. You can’t chase two rabbits at the same time. Both will escape.”

“Personal Responsibility is when an individual volunteers to be in charge of duties, tasks and is ready to see to its fulfilment”
Sunday Adelaja

“High performers whom exhibit tremendous self-control tend to be burden by their own competence. Studies indicate that being extraordinary competent can place a person under an unusual amount of stress because it raises other people’s expectation of them. The more task that an exemplary employee produces with a ‘go-getting personality’ while maintaining high quality relationships with peers and clients, the more an organization tends to underestimates their actual effort and the more it expects of them. Other people do not comprehend how difficult it is for a high performer to complete multifaceted tasks. They also tend to underestimate how much effort an enterprising person exerts who maintains a positive and pleasant attitude while completing difficult assignments.”
Kilroy J. Oldster, Dead Toad Scrolls

“To be effective in fulfilling your goals, you must break them down into little tasks and then spend most of your time working on the task in front of you, instead of being overwhelmed by the enormity of the big goal.”
Sunday Adelaja, How To Become Great Through Time Conversion: Are you wasting time, spending time or investing time?

“Finish the most important tasks and stop wasting time on irrelevant activities.”
Sunday Adelaja, How To Become Great Through Time Conversion: Are you wasting time, spending time or investing time?

“Determine when you are most effective and energized, then plan your tasks within that time.”
Sunday Adelaja, How To Become Great Through Time Conversion: Are you wasting time, spending time or investing time?

Jess Row, The Train to Lo Wu

“Procrastination isn’t task management, it’s feeling management.”
Scott Ginsberg

“Invest in yourself, invest in today if you want to build a better tomorrow. Nothing will come from nothing. You have to be active in your own betterment, in the betterment of your life. You have to do what you can today instead of putting it off until tomorrow. Do what you can each day. Match the energy of the day to what you CAN do, rather than what you can't. Make a list of tasks that you will not neglect. What really matters to you? What really matters to you in terms of the future you want to build? Do that. Do something for your future every single day. Success is found in diligence and perseverance. Keep going, keep investing in yourself. Your life will benefit from it!”
Akiroq Brost

“The robot successfully dismounted the car, proceeding at a slight crouch, and with exaggerated caution, toward the door; these movements it performed in the manner of a prodigiously shitfaced man intent on demonstrating that he had only had a couple of sherries with dinner.”
Mark O'Connell, To Be a Machine: Adventures Among Cyborgs, Utopians, Hackers, and the Futurists Solving the Modest Problem of Death
