Chapter 2, Page 15, Book 21

You cannot escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today.

Abraham Lincoln

February 15th - It’s Monday!

In the long run, we shape our lives, and we shape ourselves.  The process never ends until we die.  And the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility.

Eleanor Roosevelt

We often put off that we should be doing today until tomorrow.  They way of getting around this problem is by planning what you are going to do that day the night before.

Once the Tasks for today have been completed we can relax and and enjoy the evening and then wake up the next morning going straight away by diving into the priorities for the day.

If we don’t take responsibility for our actions, nothing will get done.  We are the ones that have to do the work, or whatever tasks get done.  Nobody is going to do it for us.

The way we develop character is to show it with the authority you are given, whether in the work you do, The people you manage, or the family you love.

Whatever you are, be a good one.

Abraham Lincoln

Having a good plan and the right tools is one of the most important elements of any job.  If you have the chance to prepare and get ready, you should take that opportunity and make the most of it 

If you have something on your to do list you may as well get it done now.  There is no value in procrastination.  Procrastination is dishonest trait, because it’s really lying to yourself.

If you have the drive to get where you want to be, you will get there.  The most important factor in determining success is your desire to have that success.

All you can do is your best.  Every day we need to put our best foot forward in every opportunity. 

Let our advance worrying become advance thinking and planning.

Winston Churchill

Stop worrying. Plan and take action.

It is always a pleasure to read your common sense statements, again you have given me a couple jewels to remember. I used to plan my 'next day' automatically. Now at times I forget it. But even now as a retiree, I need to do it to keep my 'mind on track.'
Then you said this:

Having a good plan and the right tools is one of the most important elements of any job.

Yep in writing or construction, the right tools are required for success.
Love ya

Great minds! A few years ago I got in the habit of making a 'to-do' list for the next day -- an agenda, if you will. That's not to say I get everything crossed off; more often than not there's lots of carry-forwards. But it helps keep me from swimming in circles!

Isn't this the perfect one for me today. I should have jumped back into decluttering and deep cleaning today, but I'm still just too exhausted. I guess it was the stress of the wedding that did it. I feel like I ran a marathon over the weekend. Maybe I should try to find the energy to get a few things done this afternoon. Thanks for the inspiration!
