Great quote and yes I have read it attributed to others. This weekend we are focused on family and so good to have family visiting us. Then back to work on Monday.

Hello Thomas - a good message.  Moving forward is a fine goal, but there's nothing necessarily bad about a few sideway steps along the way.  There's also a case to be made for standing still on occasion.  And, yes, some steps that seem to go in the opposite direction too.   It's a process.

Indeed it is a process and when you know that, the stand-stills and steps back are revealed as critical components of the big picture rather than set backs.

Hi Thomas- that quote or a similar version of it is something our good friend lives by and is why he was as successful as he was. He was barely a high school graduate who had to go into the Army right after graduation. Destination-Vietnam. But following this mantra, he eventually owned 5 hair salons and several properties.

There are quite a few goals I have for 2024 that could be taken up a notch or two, haha.

People often do not reach their potential because they don't try. Take that first step!

I like Norman Vincent Peale's quote, Thomas. And, it's nice to know that Whiskey is a 49er fan.
