There are days when the battery is empty.

The rain is falling, it’s cold, you’re tired and the inspiration has gone.

Do one thing that is important or matters, whatever that is, just do something so the day is not a right off. Take one task that will make a difference, whatever that is, and do it.

Those ‘one things’ on the days when you’ve given up will add up.

Whatever we achieve now is building our future, to let a whole day go is a waste.

Tomorrow you’ll be happy you did just one thing. Success is often made up of small things done every day.
