Starting Slow

Starting slow is better than doing nothing.

Hi! Haven’t been writing much since August. My attention has been focused on other things, such as fitness, my wife’s pregnancy, etc…

Now, I’m trying to get back in the swing of things. 🙂

No full blown article right now. Just a few quotes to lift our spirits (and to get me started 😛 )

Starting slow, is better than not starting.

  • Stop being negative.  No one wants to hear it.  Be different and focus on the positive.  Remember, there are many people who are happy with much less than you have.
  • Fear is a liar.
  • Jump out of bed and crush the floor boards every morning by smashing your feet down and defiantly take on each and every day.
  • Don’t be jealous… Be INSPIRED.
  • Progress, not perfection.  Stop beating yourself up for not being perfect and focus on small changes that make you 1% better everyday.

I got them from this article which i tweeted recently:  50 Ways to Achieve Greatness in Your Life

I regularly tweet interesting articles that i read. So if you want to see what I’m reading, follow me on twitter. 🙂

Watch out for my next post too. I think it’ll be about “the dangers of perfectionism”

Till then.

I’m not a has-been!

Eventually everyone feels like a has-been when they’re not. That’s the whole point — that’s the premise of the story. We all still have this thing burning inside of us and if we just nurture it, we can revitalize ourselves.
– Sylvester Stallone, on the final Rocky film, “Rocky Balboa”

Here’s a quote to keep you thinking:

The truth is always an abyss. One must — as in a swimming pool — dare to dive from the quivering springboard of trivial everyday experience and sink into the depths, in order to later rise again — laughing and fighting for breath — to the now doubly illuminated surface of things.
– Franz Kafka, 1883 – 1924

people are like trees (Quote from Joe Hallet)

I think people are like trees. Some of us will flame brilliantly like sugar maples as we approach death. We will look forward to the promises of God and surrender our lives into his care. But others will wither and cling to the dying ashes of this life. Their self-centered lifestyles will deform them, making them like a twisted oak clutching its dead leaves. I wonder what your autumn will hold?
