“Never give up on a dream just because of the time it will take to accomplish it. The time will pass anyway.”
Earl Nightingale (1921-1989);
entrepreneur, motivational author
This reminds me of a story I once heard.
Two old friends were sitting in a coffee shop and one friend said, “I have been thinking about going back to school and getting my degree” and the other friend said, “that is a great idea, when do you start?” But the first friend just sighed and said “I’m not sure I should…Look at how old I will be in four years?” and the other friend looked thoughtful for a few minutes and then said “yeah, can I see your point, but can I ask you a questions?” “Sure, what is it? Asked the first friend, “well, I was just wondering how old will you be if you don’t go to back to school?”
It is meant to be a kind of joke but it is surly a thought-provoking one…In fact after hearing it I spent some time thinking about my excuses and then finally went back to school myself. Here it is four years later and I am four years older, but now I have my degree to show for it. I also hope I am just a little smarter as well…
