Inspiration exists, but it has to find us working.

—Pablo Picasso (1908; Public Domain)

And that work needs to involve focused action, not “busy” work.

Don’t think, just do.

—Horace (65 BC – 8 BC, Public Domain)

Making plans for one’s life is extremely important; the process gives us direction and crystalizes a vision of where we want to go and who we want to become.

And continue moving forward, without stop and despite the inevitable and chronic obstacles in our way. So, let’s take a few minutes reviewing our grand plan each morning, and spend the rest of the day simply moving forward. With constant, focused action, we will reach our destination—or discover a wonderful new place not on our original map at all.
