Critical Life Lessons

Happy Monday to All-
For those of you who have known my blog for any period of time you may have noticed some changes. I have wanted to give my space a facelift for some time and slowly I am working through what I want -- and trying to get the technology in sync. This all requires #1 time, #2 my willingness to be pulled out of the studio (both mentally & physically). Being a Spring person, (and and a die-hard project manager) I have set a goal of the first day of Spring to have things updated and ready to roll-on....

Sometimes this can be daunting, but then where would the fun (or sense of accomplishment) be if it was ALL easy.

I also had been chatting here about my color book recently... having filled its pages after many years. Many memories of places, people, times spent and of course COLOR filled these pages, but there were also things pasted in that have been worth re-finding. This list was pasted in long, long ago (during my Y2K project if you can remember back then). It came from one of those newsletters that used to be routed through the office. Wish I could remember which one and give them credit... It seems fitting, so I hope you enjoy thinking about these with me this week.

Critical life lessons
  • The ability to focus separates the successful from the unsuccessful.
  • The most impossible feat is made up of very possible small accomplishments.
  • Teach yourself patience-it will be good company during the long haul to success.
  • There's nothing like the smell of success to make some people get lazy and complacent.
  • Family and friends who love you dearly will be the first to tell you to give it up.
  • If you can be distracted from your goal, you don't have what it takes to play in the big leagues.
  • When you believe in what you're doing with all your heart and soul, there is no force on Earth that can stop you.

It's looking good. I had to set my own deadline as well...or I would have kept dragging it out.

thanks for your comments..
Deadlines like this one make me plan it out and work the plan....
Like you say R, otherwise we drag it out!

Truer words have not been written or spoken! Deadlines are something I struggle with...I need to be more organized about them.

Paula-I really love #2 for keeping me from butting too much up against a deadline. Take that impossible feat and break it up into smaller manageable tasks. Once a project manager, always a pm. It works, unless we try to take on too much. I am very guilty of this one. Thanks for your comments!
