Groundhog Day & Do-Overs

Happy Groundhog Day - minus the snow here in South Florida and maybe where you are as well. Can't think of Groundhog Day without recalling the Bill Murray movie of the same name.

Wouldn't it be great to keep repeating something until we got it right? Learning the guitar or the piano, speaking a different language, writing HTML code, playing baseball or softball well enough for scouts to notice, closing nearly all of our sales presentations?

If we could do all of this without one day actually going by, it would be great. The fact is though that time does move on and we have to choose which endeavors we want to tackle and which to focus on. Likewise, which ones to pass up or ignore.

We can only accomplish so much with the time we have. Therefore, we have to be ready - prepared, anticipated, practiced, and rehearsed - to be the very best we can today by beginning long before today. We need to decide where we would like to be and start to get there.

There are no do-overs. Only focus, dedication, persistence, and perseverance.

Steve ~ Do overs would be nice at times. Like you said, we have to make choices and do our best.

There are no do-overs. Only focus, dedication, persistence, and perseverance.  No true words ever spoken Steve.  Happy Groundhog Day from the Q

Diane,

Do-overs would take the edge off of doing our best because we'd always have a fall-back position. :)

Howdy and morning Steve

Steve my friend, Bill Murray sure was really good in Groundhog Day, just like all the other Movies he was in. Sure don't know what the next 6 weeks of Winter holds for my area.

There really has not been a Winter here yet, a lot of the folks up here are really up set about it. The Business that make most of their money in the Winter have not done well at all.

Have a good one

We cannot all be good at all things. We all possess different gifts. We must choose wisely and make every moment count. Once the moment passes it is gone forever. Enjoy your day!
