"It is the greatest of all mistakes to do nothing because you can only do a little."

(Quote from Sydney Smith--one of many that I keep around my office)
I have a tendency to get caught up in all-or-nothing thinking.
"How's that working for you?"
It ain't. Time to re-assess!
I can't go to my 60- or 90 minute yoga class five days a week...but I CAN do 15 or 30 minutes at home in the YOGA ROOM in my house!
I can't spend 5 hours at the state library today...but I CAN spend 2 hours there!
I can't get the entire house spotless this weekend...but I CAN do laundry and clean the bathrooms!
And those three half-measures will represent true progress, unlike sitting around berating myself because I used to do more yoga and keep a cleaner house.
I think I'm going to get some of my office quotes printed up beautifully and framed for the house. They are just as applicable at home!
