Thought(s) for the Day: Thursday
Anita Sharpe on Passionate Work

'Life is a series of near misses. But a lot of what we ascribe to luck is not luck at all. It's seizing the day and accepting responsibility for your future. It's seeing what other people don't see and pursuing that vision, no matter who tells you not to.

'If you want to achieve widespread impact and lasting value, be bold.'

'In the ethical vacuum of this era, people long to be inspired.' -- Starbucks founder Howard Schultz (from Pour Your Heart Into It)

Incredible book. Also enjoyed My Sister Is A Barista (maybe difficult to find in U.S.).

P.S. You make your own luck.

A lot of it is luck.

My favorite part of that quote is, 'no matter who tells you not to.' Amen to that!

Never listen to the naysayers.
