One of the best pieces of advice I ever got was from a horse master. He told me to go slow to go fast. I think that applies to everything in life. We live as though there aren’t enough hours in the day but if we do each thing calmly and carefully we will get it done quicker and with much less stress.
When I dare to be powerful – to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid.
Concentrate all your thoughts upon the work in hand. The sun’s rays do not burn until brought to a focus.
Alexander Graham Bell
The act of doing something un-does the fear.

I always try to start out with some type of goal. Then I work backward and think of what I need to do to get there, and give myself smaller goals that are more immediate.
Make each day your masterpiece.
Never work just for money or for power. They won’t save your soul or help you sleep at night.
Marian Wright Edelman
