There’s no secret recipe for success.

There’s no miracle cure for lack of motivation.

If you’re out of shape, there’s no pill that will make you healthy–despite what some marketers would have you believe. If you’re hurting financially, there’s no magic spell that will make you wealthy.

Even if you win the lottery, you just temporarily have a larger account balance. It won’t last.

Unless you do the work.

What work?

That’s not a secret, either. You know what you need to do. No matter how long you read emails and websites like mine, you will rarely if ever stumble across an idea or practice that is truly new to you–that you didn’t at some level already know.

Sure, we might package things up in a way that you haven’t seen before. But the core process? It’s always the same.

Improvement takes consistent work. If you want to get somewhere, you have to get moving.

So what are you waiting for? The next “big idea” that will make everything easier? It’s not going to happen.

Get moving. Now.

I mean that. Right now. Find one action that you’ve been meaning to take, one step–no matter how small–toward a goal that you have been putting off. Do it. Do it right now.

I don’t care if you’re in the middle of a business meeting. There is something you can do to get started on your journey. Write an email to someone you think is a great role model. Take a “bathroom break” and do 10 push-ups… or 2, if that’s where you are. Take a quick walk around the house or office and shut off lights that aren’t being used.

Like Nike says: Just do it.
