Endless Troubles

Ninety percent of the troubles coming at you down the road will end up in the ditch before they reach you.

– Calvin Coolidge

Mind Achievement

What the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve.

– Napoleon Hill

Not The Same

The significant problems we have cannot be solved at the same level of thinking with which we created them

– Albert Einstein

What do You Want to Have Accomplished?

“You could do anything you put your mind to”

“In 30 years, what do you want to have accomplished? It’s OK not to have an answer, but you need to start thinking about it. Once you know that, things start to become clear. The people you meet, the opportunities and situations you find are often a function of that objective.”

– Jeff Weiner, LinkedIn CEO

We Can Still Do Anything

“What we have to remember is that we can still do anything. We can change our minds. We can start over. Get a post-bac or try writing for the first time. The notion that it’s too late to do anything is comical. It’s hilarious. We’re graduating college. We’re so young. We can’t, we MUST not lose this sense of possibility because in the end, it’s all we have.”

– Marina Keegan (The Opposite of Loneliness)

Not Taking Risk Is Biggest Risk

“The biggest risk is not taking any risk… In a world that changing really quickly, the only strategy that is guaranteed to fail is not taking risks.”

– Mark Zuckerberg.

Thinking, a Solid One

“Rarely do we find men who willingly engage in hard, solid thinking. There is an almost universal quest for easy answers and half-baked solutions. Nothing pains some people more than having to think.

Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be. This is the interrelated structure of reality.”

– Martin Luther King, Jr.
