Sandpoint Realty 'Monday Motivation' - December 11, 2023

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Sandpoint Realty LLC DB36113

Sandpoint Realty 'Monday Motivation' leans more  towards the ongoing rather than a finish.  As we near the end of 2023 and the beginning of 2024 think twice on the importance of wanting to disregard all of the mistakes and trials of our year past.  

Sandpoint Realty Monday Motivation Roads End


     In browsing quotes for change or new beginnings I found it interesting how many wanted yesterday's mistakes and trials to be erased by starting over. 

     As with climbing references to reach our goals I feel a goal reached should be but a plateau, not a final peak, that we can then see beyond to many more goals to choose from. 

    The roads end should not mean a destination to which we stop, but rather, where we can choose which road to further explore ourselves and use the road just traveled experiences to better explore the road ahead.

I like your quote selection.

Have a great day and an outstanding week.

We have our first snow day of the season in Maryland.

Good morning Mark,

I haven't heard this quote before but a powerful message. We learn from yesterdays mistakes and trials and they should not be erased. They can add to the pondering of the direction we need to now take....always goals looming, never do we stop learning or exploring the best way for each of us to take.

Mark Don McInnes, Sandpoint-Idaho like a road trip once we have reached our destination, a new trip begins to another destination.  It should be the same with goals.

Dorie Dillard's post led me to your post.  One thing about mistakes and errors in judgement, there is not a thing you can do to undo them.  Like you said, you may as well learn from them and do better.  That something that I grapple with as I am sure many others do as well.  Thanks for the motivation to keep it moving.

Great quote, Mark.  I often find a fork at the end of the road, and wonder which to take.

Yes Mark, When you think you've finished and there's nowhere else to go, don't worry! A new level might appear, showing you there's more to explore and discover.

Learning from our mistakes is an important thing to do and I have made a lot of mistakes so far in 2023 that hopefully I will learn from and do better with in 2024, haha.

Mark Don McInnes, Sandpoint-Idaho - The past can never be erased. It is our job to try to fix the things we can that are within our control and to forgive ourselves if we failed promising ourselves what would would do the next time. Time. Will we have time to do it all again? Or is it end of the road with our own handwriting on the wall?
