A sampling of things that are going on and around.

The secret … is getting started.

The secret of getting ahead is getting started. The secret of getting started is breaking your complex overwhelming tasks into small manageable tasks, and then starting on the first one.

– Mark Twain

I don’t think you could get more concise advice than that.  Every once in a while, it helps to take a step back from your daily, weekly (monthly) struggle and look at the big picture.  At least in my case, I always see that the things I dread aren’t that big, aren’t that bad.  And I am thankful.

Thanks also to Mark Twain, a literary father to me and so many others.
