Take Small Steps!

Sunday, May 16, 2010

Always break a large task down into small steps. It is a lot easier to walk a hundred yards than it is to walk a mile. If you walk a hundred yards seventeen times, you will have gone a mile but the important thing is that you will have accomplished seventeen goals and not just one. By breaking the large task down into smaller ones, the tasks are more readily doable and the opportunity for reward keeps you moving forward

A Sad State of Affairs

Saturday, May 15, 2010

My son and I went to the builders show yesterday. The first time we went to this show, it filled the arena, fifteen aisles from wall to wall. Yesterday, there were three aisles and they stopped about fifty feet short of the back wall. To make things worse, two of the aisles were single sided so there were only the equivalent of two aisles! Maybe forty exhibitors. Three insurance providers, two elevator salespeople, two people selling massage chairs and insoles and the Building Construction Program at Georgia Tech. Not much of a show at all. Home building has created a glut of finished, half-finished and just started homes that were there when the bottom fell out. We need to move that inventory before building gets back on course, Until then, builders are finding other things to do.

    There's an old story that speaks of two monks who were on a journey through the mountains. They came upon a small village and asked for some food and water. Immediately, a man began to cuss and curse them, saying all sorts of mean and vile things. So they left and traveled on without food or water.

A couple of miles down the road the younger monk spoke, "That was so mean and cruel of the man back in the village, wasn't it?"

The older monk simply replied, "That man is far behind us and you are still carrying him with you. Let 'em go and be free to take the next step!"

Yes, Don't Waste Today on Yesterday! emoticon

Always Do Your Best!

Thursday, May 13, 2010

True success is not necessarily about being the best at all cost. It's about DOING your best at all times. If you do that long enough, who knows, you might just end up being the best.
