Finding the Next Step

“If you are the smartest person in the room, then you are in the wrong room.”― Confucius It was common for my business professors to quote Confucius and I always wondered what they meant by it.

So keep going.

The process of writing itself takes a long time. Don’t be too worried if it takes a few years (hey it’s like college except less expensive). Awhile back I talked about setting goals but never be afraid to re-evaluate those goals. For example, having two kids now I have to acknowledge my schedule has changed. Have I given up- not at all. But I need to readjust.

Don’t beat yourself up over a missed goal. Acknowledge what is working, throw out what isn’t, and get back to it.

Happy Questing!
