    A THOUGHT FOR TODAY:

    I did try very hard to tell the whole truth without violating my literary instincts. One can write nothing readable unless one constantly struggles to efface one’s own personality. Good prose is like a window pane. -George Orwell, writer (1903-1950)

    Motivational Quote of the Day – 7 Nov 2011 – Just Do It!!! 


    “So what do we do? Anything – something. So long as we don’t just sit there. If we screw it up, start over. Try something else. If we wait until we’ve satisfied all the uncertainties, it may be too late.”

    Lee Iacocca
    Author of Where Have All The Leaders Gone?

    *******I don’t know about you, but I don’t sit around twiddling my thumbs waiting for opportunity to knock or expecting it to fall into my lap.  Do like the site StumbleUpon.  Get up and do something, so you stumble upon something.  Remember the Nike slogan “Just Do It”?  Take that slogan into consideration when you want or need something.  Help yourself.  Take the first step.  It is then you will find an abundant amount of opportunities waiting for you to take.  Moral of the story?  Don’t wait on opportunities, they are waiting on you.*******
