42 Upbeat Keep Going Quotes to Refocus You

Keep Going Quotes

Stay On Track. Keep Going And Focus

You are in the right place if you need some encouragement. If you’re feeling stuck, remember your why!

There must have been a reason why you’ve started what you’ve started. When you hit a bump on the road, it’s not the end of the road. It’s just a bump. Try to think of the big picture. If you give up today, that’s it. Coulda, woulda, shoulda.

Visualize how your life will be once you complete your goal. Try to dwell in that feeling. Let it engulf you like hot water in a jacuzzi.

That being said, don’t miss the things happening in your life now. Stop and appreciate the big and small things going on around you.

Book Recommendation

Austin Kleon “Keep Going”

Often times a blog post is not enough. That’s why I always try to recommend further reading.

This is a great book with actionable steps to improve your creative work and to get the juices flowing. If you don’t have time for the full book, I recommend using the Blinkist app which summarizes key takeaways of the book with no fluff. There’s even an audio version. This is my go-to app for reading nonfiction books. It helps me separate the wheat from the chaff and to save time and money.

We all have good days and bad days. One day we’re full of life and inspired and the next it’s the opposite.

Austin Kleon will show you how to establish a routine to make sure you show up for work regardless of how creative you’re feeling and how to disconnect yourself from intrusions of the hectic world around you.

He will show you how artists, writers, and even rock bands use to-do lists to always feel inspired and how to reignite your creativity.

Austin paints a bigger picture that is life.
