Just a brief thought this morning:
I have many pieces of paper taped to my computer, my walls, pinned to a pullet in board and under plastic on my desk. They are motivational to me. I can’t tell you why one ends up one place and another ends up somewhere else. It may be due to size or shape, when they “joined” my collection or perhaps the subject. I really haven’t taken much time to figure that out. Maybe I should, but that seems like procrastinating from something else…like a task I don’t want to do or I am afraid of doing. Which is another subject for another day…
When I sat down with my coffee to read email and blogs this morning, I noticed one of these quotes that I attached to my computer. I admit, I don’t really notice them very often anymore, as they have been there so long. One of them says: “Constant Forward Progress!!!” I no longer have any idea where the saying came from, as I did not write the source on the paper, so I cannot give credit where it is due. My first thought this morning was “no, not just constant progress…it has to be positive forward progress.” The constant part is nice, but the important part is the positive. It doesn’t matter if I take a breather and stall out for a few hours, or even for a day, as long as I just stall and don’t go backwards.
So, I will be changing that slip of paper today…and reassessing some of the other ones. I am thinking that this is Positive Forward Progress!
