Quotations, Images, etc. Week Ending 1 June 2013:
Focus = Feeling. – Tony Robbins
Patience is not the ability to wait, but the ability to keep a good attitude while waiting. – Joyce Meyer
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. – Mark Twain
I hate the phrase ‘having it all’ — no one has it all, and trying to is the surest way to make yourself feel like a failure. I try to think of it as “having what matters.” What matters to me right now are my family and my work. I don’t throw huge dinner parties or even go to many, and every plant in my house for the last decade has died. Maybe it’ll be different when my kids are older, but keeping focused on the two things I care about helps me not beat myself up for the 17 things I’m not doing at any given moment. – Cindi Leive
What one thing if you did it quickly and well would have the greatest impact on your work? – Brian Tracy.
Success is a series of decisions, small and big. – Meg Bertini
Never confuse motion with action. – Benjamin Franklin
GoalsHappenHere Articles Week Ending 1 June 2013:
Avoiding Self-Sabotage Relapses: Life is going well, and you feel invincible. You’re sure you’ve identified and eliminated your self-sabotaging tendencies (see Recognizing Self-Sabotage and Overcoming Self-Sabotage), and your conscious and subconscious are in sync in working toward your goals.
Then things start to take a turn for the worst. At first, you can’t be sure if it’s just natural life variance or if somehow you’re causing the problems.

A Morning Ritual That Lasts Until Afternoon: I’ve read several articles recently about the significance of establishing a morning ritual, and I agree that it’s important. I’ve known for years that morning is my most productive time of day, so anything that really matters to me, I do then.
The only problem is that I have a *lot* of things that matter to me: Journaling. Meditating. Exercising. Evaluating and setting my goals, both for the current day and for the longer term, and making sure that those goals are in sync with each other and my overall mission and purpose.
