Things have been rough on a personal level for me lately. Sometimes I feel like everything is falling apart and sometimes I feel like I'm right where I need to be. I don't feel like thinking about or doing anything about or changing or moving past any of the things that are going on because frankly I don't have the time or energy right now. I just need to get through the end of the semester and the urgent pressing issues. I thought I'd share some motivation (for my own good) and also for any of you out there having a down day too.
You've got to get up every morning with determination if you're going to go to bed with satisfaction.
-George Horace Lorimer
Don't be afraid to give your best to what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.
When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on.
-Franklin D. Roosevelt
I may not be there yet, but I'm closer than I was yesterday.
Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.
A leader, once convinced that a particular course of action is the right one, must be undaunted when the going gets tough.
