Remember this, especially when it seems as if Excellence is unattainable. Your determination and productivity must be matched with patience.” — Anon
GET INTO THE POSTURE FOR WORK
“The hardest part of practicing was sitting down at the keyboard. After that, habit and discipline took over, and I was in motion.” — Ania Dorfmann, Pianist
You Go Out Every Day
“To run a marathon, you don’t just go out and run a marathon, or you’re going to kill yourself. Life is like that. You go out every day, and you put the mileage in.” — Mariel Hemingway, actor
A blueprint for achievement
BELIEVE while others are doubting.
PLAN while others are playing.
STUDY while others are sleeping.
DECIDE while others are delaying.
PREPARE while others are daydreaming.
BEGIN while others are procrastinating.
WORK while others are wishing.
SAVE while others are wasting.
LISTEN while others are talking.
SMILE while others are pouting.
COMMEND while others are criticizing.
PERSIST while others are quitting.
— William Arthur Ward
