Thought for the week 2/8/2016

It’s February and the days are short here in New Hampshire. The whole house seems to be battling a cold or some other malady. Hunkering down and staying home have been the common sentiments since New Years eve. With that in mind, here is my though this week.

Thought: Go places, do things and ask questions. Imagination is fueled by seeing, doing and feeling new things. It’s important to combine ass in chair work time and get out and explore time so that your brain works and creates incredible things.

Quote: “I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious.”        ~ Albert Einstein



Thought for the week 2/1/2016

I didn’t like the idea of posting a “lesson” every week so I’ve switched to sharing my thought for the week and a quote that gives some inspiration to that thought.

Thought: Making plans doesn’t make you rigid, predictable or boring. Planning simply means you are confident in what you want and are willing to take the steps you need to get there.

Quote: “Your life will be no better than the plans you make and the action you take. You are the architect and builder of your own life, fortune, destiny.”  ~Alfred Montapert


Weekly Lesson & Quote 10/19/2015

Last week I was recovering from being sick and kicking off a few new projects. A bunch of things didn’t go the way I expected them to and I started to worry that all the projects were bad ideas and that I needed to rethink everything. I let negative thinking impact what I had to get done.

Lesson: Attitude and frame of mind have a significant impact on productivity.

Quote: “Think positive, be positive and positive things will happen.” ~Unknown

If you know who I can attribute that quote to please let me know. I did several google queries, but none of them offered attribution.


Weekly Lesson & quote 10/12/2015

Last week things started to get busy. In addition to the usual work stuff I had some flu like symptoms at the end of the week. In an effort to build on last weeks lesson I was working on writing down my to-do list more consistently.

Lesson: Getting to-do items out of my head and into a trusted storage location frees my brain from worry and confusion, allowing me to be creative and productive.

Quote: “If your mind is empty, it is always ready for anything; it is open to everything” ~ Shunryu Suzuki
