MAYBE COMFORTABLE, JUST NOT WHERE YOU SHOULD BE

"All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves. We must die to one life before we can enter another."

Anatole France, late 19th early 20th century French author.

One of the many reasons people resist change, even that they believe will lead to something better.

THE VALUE OF WORRY

"A day of worry is more exhausting than a week of work."

John Lubbock, 19th century English banker/philanthropist


This says much about the value of worry.

There isn't any.

You may not eliminate it but do all you can to minimize it.

ACTUALLY WORKING IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN LOOKING AS THOUGH IT WILL ACTUALLY WORK

"Beauty is less important than quality."

Eugene Ormandy, 20th century Hungarian born violinist/conductor

In some instances, maybe not, but I wouldn't bank on it when creating product you want to sell.

From cars to computers, the product landscape is littered with what were initially considered attractive products whose quality ultimately proved lacking.

Looks count, just not for everything.

DO YOU KNOW?

"Wisdom and deep intelligence require an honest appreciation of mystery."

Thomas Moore, early 19th century Irish poet

Paraphrasing, the truly intelligent know there is and always will be much more they don't know than there is that they do know.

Do you know?

WHO YOU SHOULD (NOT) TRUST

"Do not trust your memory; it is a net full of holes; the most beautiful prizes slip through it."

Georges Duhamel, 20th century French author

I know this is important, and, at one point, I knew why. 

Just not now.
