Check Every Corner of Life

“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.”

New Year’s Countdown: Resolution 4

To Make Mistakes:

“Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re Doing Something. 
So that’s my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody’s ever made before. Don’t freeze, don’t stop, don’t worry that it isn’t good enough, or it isn’t perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life. 
Whatever it is you’re scared of doing, Do it.
Make your mistakes, next year and forever.” 

**Neil Gaiman

One Way or the Other

“It’s been my experience that you can nearly always enjoy things if you make up your mind firmly that you will.” 

**Lucy Montgomery

Thousands of Dollars Training

“Recently, I was asked if I was going to fire an employee who made a mistake that cost the company $600,000. No, I replied, I just spent $600,000 training him. Why would I want somebody to hire his experience?”

**Thomas Watson

Experience Is as Experience Does

“Experience is not what happens to you; it’s what you do with what happens to you.”

**Aldous Huxley
