Friday Quote and Thoughts for 2008

"I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve (or save) the world and a desire to enjoy (or savor) the world. This makes it hard to plan the day." - E. B. White

Old E.B. sure had a knack for summing things up. So here's some conflicting advice about getting things done for the next year. I've read a lot of year-end/new year advice and have enjoyed these the most. Chrissey over at The Executive Assistant's toolbox says to stop fiddling with your system and just DO IT ALREADY! while norbauer over at 43folders reminds me to embrace my inner underachiever. The Merlin himself also has some wise words for the new year: Begin the New Year with Fresh Starts and Modest Changes and remember that sometimes the best we can do is to "keep putting the puppy back on the paper."

Have a great 2008.
