'Monday Motivation' from Sandpoint Idaho

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Sandpoint Realty LLC DB36113

Top of the morning.  In posting 'Monday Motivation' over the past years there have been a few that stick out, and I like to repost them from time to time.  Mostly as a reminder to myself. This particular Sandpoint Idaho Monday Motivation is my favorite.

Sandpoint Idaho Motivation 

With 1st quarter 2021 coming to an end and 2020 having passed a bit ago maybe now is a good time to take a moment and reflect back.  I find it motivating in that during tough times, when an obstacle arises, or even the bland day to day, knowing whether a month, or a year, I will look back at the moment.  That thought, driven from this quote, has helped me strive to grow every day. 

Hopefully you can find something of value in it.

Mark that is a very appropriate quote to keep us going when we want to stop.

Hi Mark- what an inspirational quote!!! If we can look at where we started and how much we've achieved, we'd always want to keep going.

Kathy perhaps you remember when I did that long bike ride.  I will never forget passing over a bridge early morning then later having climbed and able to look back at a small spec that was the same bridge.  A very big AHAH moment for clarity and the importance of looking back from time to time.  Make it a great day.

I began swimming laps again this past Wednesday.  I am amazed at how much of my mojo was lost during the pandemic.  Still, I am glad to begin the journey of being in the water once again.

Now that's a great motivational quote! I think we can unanimously agree that based on 2020 and Q1 we have a lot of catching up to do!

I read your comment to Kathy and remember that challenge you took very well. There's a lot of drive in you and determination too!
