Water Does Not Flow Until the Faucet is Turned On

The Powerful Paragraph

One of my favorite quotes as a writing coach was said by Louis L’Amour: “Start writing no matter what, the water does not flow until the faucet is turned on.” When I first heard the quote, I thought it was perfect for myself and the writers I worked with. But then I quickly realized the quote could be used for just about anything relating to productivity. This is because getting started with anything is always going to be the hardest part. Once we get started, however, the water will flow, and the momentum will carry us forward.
