Quote #447, My Thoughts and YOUR thoughts

Here goes Blog Quote #447...

"The time to relax, is when you don't have time for it."

What does this mean? Isn't it redundant or rhetorical?
Trick question?

Maybe the world and ourselves are just going too darn fast? And where are we going, by the way? What's the rush? Are our priorities in check? Is there really ANY reason why we are going so fast, that we are missing "life?"

On this second to last day of the year 2010... not a bad time to be asking this question. Perhaps a better "pace of life" in the next year may be something to add to the NY Resoultion list?

Your feedback certainly welcome here...

Quote #446, My Thoughts and YOUR thoughts

Here's Blog Quote #446...

"Believe in what you do. Because, you may have to do it for a long time, before it catches on.
-Seth Godin-

For those of you unfamiliar with Mr Godin, he is a marketing guru/genius. I'm not certain who coined the phrase 'out of the box thinking,' but whenever I hear it, I think of Seth Godin.

The brilliance of this quote is that it is so SIMPLISTIC. Yet, it is SO TRUE.

How many people have a good concept or superb idea and, have the guts to go for it and come charging out of the gate, like a quarterhorse? First, lets note: good for them to GO FOR IT. There are many a worthy idea, thought up in the shower, that sadly, never leave the bathroom.

What these quarterhorses forgot or misjudged, is that it's a mile long race. This might be a shocker.. but not everyone else, at least initially, is as excited about your idea as you are.

That doesn't mean it's not going to be a great success. As Godin suggests---it just might take a long time. Give it some perseverance, some nurturing, and plenty of attention. Share it with as many as you can, until you get to where you want to be. That is normally the difference between making it a success and just another idea that didn't get enough time to germinate.

To borrow from the great Napoleon Hill.... Concieve, believe, and achieve , and(I add) you will not BEREAVE!

That's my view...what say you?

Quote #445, My Thoughts and YOUR thoughts

Here goes Quote #445...

"Don t let yesterday take up too much of today."
-Coach John Wooden-

Could have, should have, and would have's.

Why did that happen?
How come I did it that way, versus doing it this way?
What if...?

A subtle reminder from the Coach of all coaches to leave yesterday where it belongs... yesterday.
Live in the present. Yesterday is "in the books." It's not changing. It's not coming back.

Turn your attention to today... where you can still do something about, where you can still make a difference.

Not that it's a bad thing to relive and remember. Just don't spend a ton of time on it... as you have some LIVING to do. TODAY. Now, get at it.

That's my view... What say you?
