Inspiration – Find it and Use it To Take Action Now


It is impossible to take action now and get things done if you do not have the right inspiration. Take time today to find what inspires you to get up and go and use it to get things done.

Each day there are literally hundreds of things you must do. Often, it seems that dozens of those things need to be done all at the same time and that time is now, right now. The reality of life is that you cannot do everything at the same time. In fact, you may not even want to do all the things that you need to take action now to do. When you know you must take action now to get things done but don’t want to or are afraid or feel inadequate, you must find what inspires you to take action now and use it to push you forward to act.

Inspiration is a tricky thing. On the surface, it is merely being mentally stimulated to do something. It seems to be a simple enough idea. However, it is not a simple thing. Inspiration is fleeting, situational and sensitive. Some days, we are inspired by hunger. Other days we are inspired by the desire for profit. On other days, we are inspired by a desire for giving to others. Inspiration is fleeting and we cannot always predict what will push us forward from one day to the next.

If you often find yourself having a problem finding a way to take action now and get things done, start by creating a list. Create a list of all the things that inspire you. Save that list on a piece of paper and in electronic form so that when you need to take action now and get things done but are unable, you can look at that list. Looking at the list will enable you to find something that pushes you forward. Here is a list I made recently of the things that inspire me to take action now:

  • desire to succeed
  • need to earn money to care for my family
  • competitive drive
  • lack of energy
  • creative curiosity
  • hunger
  • need to help others
  • search for joy
  • to keep my word


Inspiration can be the push you need to get things done.


This is only a small representation of the things that inspire me to take action now and get things done. Like most people, the list is long and changes from one day to the next and sometimes from one moment to the next.

When I am sitting at my desk at the beginning of the workday, I have choices to make. I want to get an article written or complete a new e-course. I really want to work on my latest knitting project. I can do what I should do- the writing work or what I would like to do – the knitting. The task that will win my work and effort? It’s easy, the one I am most inspired by at the time.



It is not always easy to find something to inspire you to take action now and get things done. Often, it is quite hard, but you still must do it. As you read this article and when you think about it later, think about ways to inspire yourself. Inspiration is a multi-faceted thing. Inspiration causes us to do the boring, mundane tasks we must do each day like clean the office, open email, and return calls. Inspiration also causes us to do great, wonderful and amazing things.



So, the question for you this magnificent day is, how do you get inspired to take action now and get things done?

  • My motivation is my son and every single time I get a bill in the mail or a expense notification in my email. Knowing I have responsibilities gets me out of the bed, forces me to write a blog post, schedule social media posts. External motivation doesn't really effect me.

    • Yes! Our children can be wonderful motivators. Knowing that they are depending on us to provide for them spurs us into action. In addition, the fact that we are role models for them also inspires us to take action and do our best.

  • Great post. At times Procrastination gets the best of me.

  • “Inspiration is fleeting, situational and sensitive.“

    Whew I felt that!

  • I literally have a brand new idea of something I want to learn or experience every single day!

  • I am a serial learning I have had about 5 businesses and this is exactly why. I would always choose to do what I want instead of what I need to do. This was a great article. I look forward to more

  • I'm one of those creative types so, I always have so many things I want to do floating in my head. It is hard sometimes to find inspiration because, one day I want to work on this and the next day I push it to the side and do nothing. I just have tonremond myself that its something I love and it's only going to get done when I push through.
