Focus on growth


What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.

Henry David Thoreau

Take care of your values

Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value.

Albert Einstein


Do not worry if it does not make sense

You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backward. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.

Steve Jobs

This is a very important quote.

We tend to forget that all the things that feel so logical and understandable from today’s perspective weren’t all that self-evident back when decisions had to be made.

In the chaos of everyday life you have to make a lot of decisions without knowing enough about the big picture to make the best decision as of right now. But still, you have to make those decisions and even not making them is basically a decision, although most likely not a good one.

Instead of overanalyzing or being paralized by fear of doing wrong, just trust yourself, trust your feelings and ideas and most importantly: Trust that it will work out in the end. After all, it has worked out until know, has it not?


Have pride!

Enjoy what you do and take pride in it because then you will do it well.

Charlie Bigham


Have some goals

People with goals succeed because they know where they are going

Earl Nightingale


We’re trying to accomplish something here!

Hell, there are no rules here – we’re trying to accomplish something.

Thomas Edison

Gotta love this quote!

Focus on getting stuff done!


The key to achievement

The secret of making something work in your lives is first of all, the deep desire to make it work; then the faith and belief that it can work; then the hold that clear definite vision in your consciousness and see it working out step by step, without one thought of doubt or disbelief.

Eileen Caddy


About chores

You do what you have to do, to do what you want to do.

Patricia Fripp

Sometimes there is stuff you do not want to do.

I personally do not like to study for university. Who does? But sometimes you have to push trough those nasty chores in order to get where you wanted to.

Bear this in mind the next time an unwanted and unpleasant task awaits.
