My "one word" for 2012
Saturday, December 31, 2011
In an earlier blog, my SP friend Mrs. Principal put forth the value of having one word to characterize your 2012. I've decided my word will be ACTION.
Thinking is good--necessary, but after thinking situations through, all the positive things that have happened in my life seem to have come after action. Usually it was my action, but sometimes action was taken on my behalf. I definitely want to be more than ever the instigator of positive things happening because of my positive actions.
Some quotes viewed just today on SP guided me to this choice:
“Knowing is not enough. we must apply. Willing is not enough, we must do.” ~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Action expresses priorities.
"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit." ~Aristotle
