Monday Mottoes – #68

PlanningAre you a plotter and a planner? I admit that I am. I want to know going into something how long it’s going to take, how much it’s going to cost, what type of time commitment is needed upfront.

No surprises, no shock, no second-guessing.

Unfortunately, life doesn’t always follow that pattern. It’s a step of faith… that should not be equated with jumping off a cliff by any means… yet there are risks to just about 0b85eed6bb17de2c8baaefbf00837433anything.

Which brings us to today’s motto:

“Don’t let the fear of the time it will take to accomplish something stand in the way of your doing it. The time will pass anyway; we might just as well put that passing time to the best possible use.” ~ Earl Nightingale

Time progresses and so should we. Why not grow and get better with every passing year? I am to do my best on a daily basis as I juggle 101 things. Sure, not everything is top-notch, but it’s not for want of trying to prioritize and put oh_no_monday_morningimportant and/or urgent things at the top of the list.

There’s five minutes here, and ten minutes there. Whittling away at what’s valuable and essential will get you to your goal sooner than waiting for a big block of time when you can totally devote yourself to it.

Time is passing. Do something today to make a difference in where you want to be headed.

Happy Monday, everyone!
