Quote #7, My Thoughts and YOUR thoughts

I love Quotes.I love them because they make me think.What does the quoter mean? Why did he/she write this? Is there a message to get through to the reader/the world? What did YOU initially think when you read it?

Here goes blog quote #7....

"Be like a postage stamp. Stick to one thing until you get there."
-Josh Billings-

Isn't it amazing how many times we start things and give up before "it gets there" ( ie: you get it done). Did you ever think how much we would accomplish in this world if each of us just finished what we started? Maybe we shouldn't have started 89% of the things that we start(and never finish). Perhaps that would be a huge time saver? How much time do we waste initiating things that we never fully intend to finish, or think through what needs to be done in order to finish the task?

In the future , before beginning something, perhaps recall the postage stamp. It's ability to stick to its job through other boxes and letters, through 10-15 different handlings, over miles and miles of terrain, through rain and sunshine. The postage stamp. Sticking to the job, til complete. HMMM.

Thats my view..... WHAT SAY YOU?
