DeMotivation And The Dubious Power Of Quotations

by - m on 06/06/2017

 

There are no motivational quotes that inspire you for more than an instant.

When initially spoken these words had the force of the moment behind them.

Today they are echoes – used by others not to inspire, but to distract.

The web is littered with lists and memes vying for your eyeballs – the data behind them sold to the highest bidder to seize even more of your attention.

Attention that could be used in more fruitful pursuits…

…like working to succeed instead of reading someone’s quote about it.
