Lesson 57: Trust the process 03/26/2012

Monday, March 26, 2012

“Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow.” - Mary Anne Radmacher


"Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending."-- Carl Bard


"Never confuse a single defeat with a final defeat."--- F. Scott Fitzgerald


"Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do."- John Wooden


"Let me win, but if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt."-- Motto of the Special Olympics


"THERE IS NO REST FOR SUCCESS

Success is a journey not a destination a year from
now you may wish you had started today.
Every beginner is a winner. Success is not escaping problems but facing them creatively.
There is no success without sacrifice.
Great success always calls for great sacrifice.
Even failure can become an important ingredient to success.
Failure just means that you have not yet succeeded.
I’d rather change my mind and succeed than have my own way and fail. Success without conflict is unrealistic.
Any person can be successful on smooth seas,
but it is the victory over the storm that gains true honor.
Success doesn’t come through the way you think it comes;
it comes through the way you think.
Never settle for less than success.
Success is doing something good.
When you can, where you can, while you can.
It’s better to attempt to do something great and fail,
than attempt to do nothing and succeed.
Success is not necessarily reaching your goal- but reaching the maximum possibilities in light of the opportunities that come your way.
To keep your values on target remember to live so that when you “arrive”, you’ll have pride behind you and hope ahead of you.
The success is truly the path to heaven.
Success is never ending, because success is like the process of seed planting. Every creative contribution like a seed planted may bear fruit.
Success finally is not what you have it is not what you do;
it is who you are, and what
you want to become of yourself."--Felix Lugo


"I don't believe you have to be better than everybody else. I believe you have to be better than you ever thought you could be."~unknown

Lesson 56: Squash procrastination with effective time management 03/17/2012

Saturday, March 17, 2012

"Nothing is so fatiguing as the eternal hanging on of an uncompleted task."~William James

An excellent food for thought article if you're looking for ways to maximize your 24 hours. I'm loving all of them, but my focus is on:

#4- Put first things first. There's a lot of activities that may be nice to do, but are not necessary at the present time.

#5 -Time Box your Tasks. I have to agree with the article. It seems the more time I give myself to do something, the longer it takes me to do it and I could get more done if, for those areas were be time boxed.

#10 -Utilize Time Pockets.

    I am pretty good at getting things done in a timely manner. I can get anything done if I set my mind to it! But my soon to be ex-husband, well, now that is a different story! He would spend 3 to 4 hours just making a list, then it would be another 2 to 3 hours to figure out which one he should do first, by then it was time for him to go to sleep! It drives me nuts! As Larry would say, Get'er done! Hope you have a great night!

  Once upon a time a gentleman was entering the old folks home, (nursing home)...and the person helping him to fill out his admission forms asked a routine question, "How was your childhood?" The elderly gent replied, "So far, so good!"
