3 Day Quote Challenge: Day 3

Here is my quote for today:

“The secret of getting ahead is getting started.” -Sally Berger

Personal thoughts:

Sometimes it’s hard to get motivated to do something a little “extra”; something that you know would take some time to complete… time you’d rather spend doing something enjoyable or relaxing. If it has to be done anyway, or if it is something that you really wish to get done, it would be a good idea to harvest that willpower and get at least part of it done. Because if you were to put it off until tomorrow, you’d still have to do the whole thing. But, if you do a part of it today, there is that much less of it left to do by tomorrow!

So go make that scheduled post to free up time tomorrow if you have the extra time today. Go pack your work/school stuff tonight before you go to bed. Go pay that credit card bill early (maybe, even, overpay it a little to give yourself some leeway). There are so many things you can do today, to make tomorrow easier. It’ll add up!

3 Day Quote Challenge: Day 2

Here is my quote for today:

“Let’s go invent tomorrow instead of worrying about what happened yesterday.” – Steve Jobs

Personal thoughts:

I agree with this quote. It’s okay to think about past events and see what you can learn from them, but spending time wishing something didn’t happen or wishing that you could have done something different uses up precious mental energy and time that you could be using on the present… or preparing for the future!

I have a daily planner. Sometimes, I don’t get everything I want done, done. But instead of kicking myself for it, I look at the list, and learn from it; I get better at predicting how long something would take the next time I do it. Therefore, with each day, I get better at optimizing my use of time to get the things I want done, done!

3 Day Quote Challenge: Day 1

Thank you for the Quote Challenge, Vikram! Sorry I’m a little late. 😉

This challenge entails providing a quote and nominating 3 other people to participate–for three consecutive days! It’s a way to encourage connecting with other bloggers and share inspiration at the same time!

Here is my quote for today:

“Go the extra mile. It’s never crowded.” – Unknown

Personal thoughts:

I though that this quote was pretty cute. It’s true though. With an increasing scale of hard dedicated work, there are less and less people as the rungs get climbed. With less and less people surrounding you, there is more leg room, less intake of recently exhaled air, more elbow room, less pushing and shoving, and–last but not least–a better ability to stand out.

In a crowd of a million people who are at the same place as you, it can be hard to stand out. But when you work on improving yourself and stay focused on achieving your goals step-by-step, you end up in a smaller crowd… and smaller yet.
