“The happiness you are searching for comes through reflecting on the worthy aims you are dedicated to achieving and then taking action daily to advance them.  This is a direct application of the timeless philosophy which prescribes that those things which are most important should never be sacrificed to those things which are the least important.” ~ Robin S. Sharma, The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari

“You are entirely responsible for cutting through your own laziness, addictions, and unclarity.  There is nothing to wait for and nobody to blame.  Whatever techniques are appropriate, use them.  Try talking with your friends, using therapy, practicing meditation or prayer, going on a vision quest, reading scripture, walking in nature, keeping a journal, or studying with a teacher.  Remember that your success with any method you choose depends entirely on your actual commitment to discovering your deepest truth and aligning your life with it.” ~ David Deida, The Way of the Superior Man

Getting your ducks in a row

“Only action determines my value in the market place and to multiply my value I will multiply my actions.  I will walk where the failure fears to walk.  I will work when the failure seeks to rest.  I will talk when the failure remains silent.  I will call on ten who can buy my goods while the failure makes grand plans to call on one.  I will say it is done before the failure says it is too late.  I will act now.” ~ Og Mandino, The Greatest Salesman in the World

“Never has there been a map, however carefully executed to detail and scale, which carried its owner over even one inch of ground.  Never has there been a parchment of law, however fair, which prevented one crime.  Never has there been a scroll, even such as the one I hold, which earned so much as a penny or produced a single word of acclamation.  Action, alone, is the tinder which ignites the map, the parchment, this scroll, my dreams, my plans, my goals, into a living force.  Action is the food and drink which will nourish my success.” ~ Og Mandino, The Greatest Salesman in the World

“If it acts like a duck (all the time), it’s a duck.  Doesn’t matter if the duck thinks it’s a dog; it’s still a duck as far as the rest of us are concerned.  Authenticity, for me, is doing what you promise, not ‘being who you are.’  That’s because ‘being’ is too amorphous and we are notoriously bad at judging that.  Internal vision is always blurry.  Doing, on the other hand, is an act that can be seen by all.” ~ Seth Godin, Whatcha Gonna Do With That Duck?

“Most learning, especially most organizational learning, occurs through trial and error.  Error occurs whether you want it to or not.  Error is difficult to avoid.  It’s not clear that research or preparation have an enormous impact on error, especially marketing error.  Error is clearly not in short supply.  Trial, on the other hand, is quite scarce, especially in some organizations.  People mistakenly believe that one way to successfully avoid error is to avoid trial.  We need more trial.” ~ Seth Godin, Whatcha Gonna Do With That Duck?
