Carpe Diem

9 Aug

How will you approach today?  Think about it for a minute…

Will you be purposeful, or will you just go through the motions?

Will your focus, on each task, be on excellence of execution, or just getting it done?

Will you try to improve upon yesterday — personally, professionally, academically, athletically — or just retrace your footsteps?

Will you run the day, or will you let the day run you?

Here are some thoughts my friend, Ginny, shared with me a while ago:

  • The way we do anything is how we do everything.  If you give 100% to making your bed, you will give 100% at work. Doing small things to the best of your ability shows that you will do the big things to the best of your ability
  • Don’t try and do everything you learn. Take a few key points and CRUSH THEM. It’s better to give 100% to 3-4 things than 20% to 15 things.
  • When you know exactly what you want, nothing will stop you. If you have a purpose, a reason — a why — you have everything you need to get started and achieve success
  • Start now and get better as you go.  Everyone on stage did not start at that point, they all started in the same position as everyone in attendance.  The only difference is they took action even when they didn’t know everything there was to know.

Have a plan, set a goal, and go to work.  Work your plan, to the best of your ability, each and every day.  Carpe Diem.

Get STRONGER, Get FASTER!

Here are some thoughts my friend, Ginny, shared with me recently:

  • The way we do anything is how we do everything.  If you give 100% to making your bed, you will give 100% at work. Doing small things to the best of your ability shows that you will do the big things to the best of your ability
