The Week in Review – 140 Characters at a Time
I joined the Twitter stream several years ago on the advice of Wendi McNeill, owner of Charli Jane Speaker Services. I whined about having one more thing to do every day to build my online presence and like a good coach, she said, “suck it up.” 7737 Tweets later, I think you can say I’m hooked. I heard there’s a WordPress plug-in to pull tweets into a weekly digest, but I’m doing this by hand today. I happen to be a little quote-obssessed which may explain one reason I love twitter. Some highlights from my tweets this week:
When you lead, your life should be a magnifying glass for others.
Problems are only opportunities with thorns on them.~ Hugh Miller
Nothing gives a day a greater chance than a good wallop of passion. ~ Max Lucado
If you really want to do something, you’ll find a way. If you don’t, you’ll find an excuse. – Jim Rohn
Live without pretending. Love without depending. Listen without defending. Speak without offending.
A river cuts through rock, not because of its power, but because of its persistence. ~Jim Watkins
We spend most of our time learning (or teaching) yesterday’s map, while we should be directing our energy to calibrating our compass. ~From Seth’s blog
“Nobody succeeds beyond his or her wildest expectations unless he or she begins with some wild expectations.” Ralph Charell
Sometimes your pit is just a “pit stop” enroute to your palace! Ask Joseph!
Try not to become a person of success but a person of value. ~Albert Einstein
You must either magnify your skills or modify your dreams.
The seeds of tomorrow’s success are often found in the dirt of yesterday’s failure.
Don’t join an easy crowd; you won’t grow. Go where the expectations to perform and demands are high.
The virtue lies in the struggle, not in the prize. – Richard Monckton
Too many people today die at 40 are buried at 80-living half-lived lives and going to their graves with their best music still in them.
