We all have two choices in life: to live consciously and purposefully, or not.
Which is summed up by this great quote I found on Twitter from twitterer @KeltieZubko, who describes herself as a writer and publisher in Western Canada. She posted today:
"There are two ways to sleep well at night -- be ignorant or be prepared." (Simon Black)
Entrepreneurs know that preparation is the key to success. I am always striving to prepare more. I made a rule once to always prepare for a meeting two days in advance. It's a good rule that I wish I could abide by more often.
While we're here, Keltie offers a few other choice quotes on her intermittent Twitter feed.
"Free speech is the gift you give to your worst enemies so you can keep it for yourself." (Douglas Christie, Cdn lawyer)
"Is it just me or are brains today suffocating in information and starving for wisdom?" (Terry Small)
John McPhee on writing a lead: It should “shine like a flashlight down through the piece.” http://tpr.ly/9zzr6r
"It's never too late to be what you might have been." (George Eliot)
"Write every day. Regaining momentum takes three times as much energy as sustaining momentum." (Daniel Pink)
"Sure I am of this, that you have only to endure to conquer." (Winston Churchill)
And finally, a great quote that seems to be from Keltie herself:
"Those who make the most mistakes will go far, as long as they don't give up."
