“Good Advice”

Good advice… is priceless.

Not what you want to hear, but what you need to hear.  Not imaginary, but practical. Not based on fear, but on possibility.  Not designed to make you feel better, designed to make you better.

Seek it out and embrace the true friends that care enough to risk sharing it.

I’m not sure what takes more guts — giving it or getting it.   (Seth Godin, Seth’s Blog   5.14.14)


“Do more than belong:  participate.  Do more than care:  help.  Do more than believe: practice. Do more than be fair:  be kind.  Do more than forgive:  forget. Do more than dream:  work.”   (William A. Ward)


“It has taken far too long to figure out that in life dumb just will happen, but stupid always is a choice, a decision, and stupid has consequences.  Our goal in life is to keep dumb and stupid far apart.  Remember, stupid always is a choice, and it usually has stupid consequences.  Think!”   (Fr. Brian Cavanaugh)


“Forget past mistakes.  Forget failures.  Forget everything except what you’re going to do now and do it.”   (William Durant)


“Sometimes all you need is twenty seconds of insane courage, just literally twenty seconds of embarrassing bravery.  And I promise you, something great will come of it.” (Benjamin Mee, We Bought a Zoo)


“Live, so you do not have to look back and say:  ‘God, how I have wasted my life.’”  (Elisabeth Kubler-Ross)


“You just have to decide if you’re a Tigger or an Eeyore.”   (Randy Pausch, The Last Lecture)
