    Oh my, what wise words! SO many reasons why the start is so hard, but once you do, the sky is the limit. Thanks, as always !

    You think so? I don't agree! I think most people start but then give up.

Embrace Failure!

Monday, May 07, 2012

Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.

~Samuel Beckett

I have not failed, I have successfully identified over a thousand things that won't work.

Make It a Great Day!

Sunday, May 06, 2012

Today I will enjoy the first day of the rest of my life. We are having a family barbecue on the day before Grammie's birthday so I have host duty of getting everything ready and cooked but that is a small price.

I will do as I advise others to do and make it a great day!

Get up and get started!

Saturday, May 05, 2012

Get up and get started! It is impossible to complete that which you never begin. A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. Just do it! (and a whole bunch of other cliche's)

The most fatal disease a person can contract is the "soonases" Soonas I get out of school... Soonas I get a job... Soonas I get married... Soonas I have children... Soonas I get divorced. Soonas is a time that never comes. the time to do something is now so Get up and get started!
