Great idea!!! Great quote(s)!!!:

– “Turn your To-Do list into a Treasure Map. It keeps you focused on your goals (your why) which keeps you motivated!” (via Twitter @robertgrant @barefoot_exec)

Reminds me of some other great quotes…

– “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” – Confucius

– “Behind every success is a succession of failures. – Rick Benetea

– “The greatest barrier to success is the fear of failure.” – Sven Goran Eriksson

– “I will do today what others will not do, so that I can do tomorrow what others cannot do.” – Unknown

– “Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.” Muriel Strode

– “The successful man is the one who finds out what is the matter with his business before his competitors do.” – Roy L. Smith

– “We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we
give.” – Winston Churchill

-”Unless you try to do something beyond what you have already mastered, you will never grow.” Ralph Waldo Emerson (via @robertgrant)

– “The greatest amount of wasted time is the time not getting started.” – Dawson Trotman (via @equalman)

– “Work like you don’t need the money. Love like you’ve never been hurt. Dance like nobody is watching.” – Mark Twain (via @robertgrant)

Five Zig Ziglar ‘goodies’ (via @TomZiglar):
– “Every job is a self-portrait of the person who did it.”
– “Ability is important. Dependability is critical.”
– “Conceit is a weird disease. It makes everybody sick except the one who’s got it.”
– “You never work for someone else. You work for yourself.”
<<< it's all about 'mindset'; so how's your 'mind' set?!?!?
– "What you do off the job plays a major part in how far you go on the job." <<< are you just an 8-5'r?!?!?

– “It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat.”

Theodore Roosevelt
“Citizenship in a Republic,”
Speech at the Sorbonne, Paris, April 23, 1910

– "Humor is mankind's greatest blessing." – Mark Twain

– "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for." – a tweet from @MyBenefitsAgent

“I am the master of my fate, I am the captain of my soul” – Nelson Mandela – ‘Invictus’
[‘Invictus’ is a short poem by the English poet William Ernest Henley]
