“No steam or gas ever drives anything until it is confined. No Niagara is ever turned into light and power until it is tunneled. No life ever grows until it is focused, dedicated, disciplined.” – Harry Emerson Fosdick
There are distractions everywhere… be prepared, and avoid excuses. Be proactive for this one life that you have been given. Dedicate yourself to a cause. Create a New You to carry you into your future. The time is now.
Philosophy In Action
You have 5 weeks in January; each week should be dedicated to a micro-goal which will ensure that you achieve your January meso-goal. Each meso-goal will lead you to your annual macro goal. Be sure to enter each goal in your calendar (with reminders to keep you on task). Self-determination comes from within. Get organized, get focused, and know that you will make it happen.
"Concentration is the secret of strength in politics, in war, in trade, in short, in all the management of human affairs." -Ralph Waldo Emerson
