It’s that time of year again – when I say that I’m going to start blogging again and lay out all my plans for doing so. But I’ve decided that there are very few people who enjoy reading all about what other people are planning. Sure, I understand the psychology of making your goals public so that others can help put peer pressure on you and hold you accountable. But still, not very fun to read.
So rather than giving you a big list of goals, let me leave you with a list of quotes that are inspiring me in pursuit of my goals.
“How many a man has dated a new era in his life from the reading of a book.”
-Henry David Thoreau
“Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.”
“There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to your former self.”
“Everybody has talent, but ability takes hard work.”
“How noble and good everyone could be if, every evening before falling asleep, they were to recall to their minds the events of the whole day and consider exactly what has been good and bad. Then without realizing it, you try to improve yourself at the start of each new day.”
What’s inspiring you to make a better year for yourself?
