When I was a kid, my mom used to have this little box, which my brother and I had to draw a small slip of paper from. This piece of paper contained our Bible verse for the day, and that verse we were asked to cherish and think about.
I guess old lessons die hard.
Lately, the box has been empty, but just now I saw two quotes in an e-mail that I thought would be useful for sharing:
"Learn to use ten minutes intelligently. It will pay you huge dividends."
— William A. Irwin
"Don’t mistake movement for achievement. It’s easy to get faked out by being busy.
The question is: Busy doing what?" — Jim Rohn
If you have never read or heard about the Getting Things Done philosophy, I would suggest that you do your homework. It may just be the breakthrough tool that you need to set your career on fire and build a reputation for achievement.
