One more approach to motivation

The late Eknath Easwaran, a well-known meditation teacher, said the following once:

Whenever I forgot to perform an errand for my grandmother, she would ask, “Have you ever forgotten your breakfast?” No, I had to confess, I hadn’t, nor had anybody else I knew. Strike a bargain with yourself – no meditation, no breakfast – and you won’t forget to meditate.

That's good! And funny!

Sounds like a helpful approach to me.

  1. That is funny but to the point! I need to have that tacked up on my refrigerator--for before I add milk to my cereal!
