"[Poem:]

'Wise Wasting Of Days'

To awaken each morning with a smile brightening my face,
to greet the day with reverence, for the opportunities it contains;
to approach my work with a clean mind;
to hold ever before me, even in the doing of little things, the Ultimate Purpose toward which I am working;
to meet men and women with laughter on my lips and love in my heart,
to be gentle, kind and courteous through all the hours;
to approach the night with weariness that ever woos sleep and the joy that comes from work well done --
this is how I desire to waste wisely my days.

" - Thomas Dekker
(circa 1572 – 1632), English Elizabethan dramatist and pamphleteer, a versatile and prolific writer whose career spanned several decades and brought him into contact with many of the period's most famous dramatists.

"[Poem:]

'World We Make'

We make the world in which we live
By what we gather and what we give,
By our daily deeds and the things we say,
By what we keep or we cast away.

We make our world by the beauty we see
In a skylark's song or lilac tree,
In a butterfly's wing, in the pale moons' rise,
And the wonder that lingers in midnight skies.

We make our world by the life we lead,
By the friends we have, by the books we read,
By the pity we show in the hour of care,
By the loads we lift and the love we share.

We make our world by the goals we pursue,
By the heights we seek and the higher view,
By hopes and dreams that reach the sun
And a will to fight till the heights are won.

What is the place in which we dwell,
A hut or a palace, a heaven or hell
We gather and scatter, we take and we give,
We make our world -- and there we live.

" - Alfred Grant Walton

[Quote No.52925] Need Area: Mind > Plan
"[Poem: about if you want something 'do it now', 'carpe diem' (seize the moment), make the most of the present moment and don't procrastinate and let time - as the metaphor water - get past you.]

'The Lesson of the Water-Mill'

Listen to the water-mill
Through the livelong day,
How the clicking of its wheel
Wears the hours away!
Languidly the autumn wind,
stirs the forest leaves,
From the field the reapers sing,
Binding up their sheaves;
And the proverb haunts my mind
As a spell is cast -
‘The mill cannot grind
With the water that has past.’
Autumn winds revive no more
Leaves that once are shed,
And the sickle cannot reap
Corn once gathered;
Flows the ruffled streamlet on,
Tranquil, deep, and still;
Never gliding back again
To the water-mill
Truly speaks the proverb old
With meaning vast -
‘The mill cannot grind
With the water that has past.’
Take the lesson to thyself,
True and loving heart;
Golden youth is fleeting by,
Summer hours depart;
Learn to make the most of life,
Lose no happy day;
Time will never bring thee back
Chances swept away!
Leave no tender word unsaid
Love while love shall last -
‘The mill cannot grind
With the water that has past.’
Work while yet the daylight shines,
Man of strength and will!
Never does the streamlet glide
Useless by the mill;
Wait not till to-morrrow’s sun
Beams upon thy way
All that thou canst call thine own
Lies in thy ‘To-day’‘
Power, intellect and health
May not always last –
‘The mill cannot grind
With the water that has past.’
Oh, the wasted hours of life
That have drifted by!
Oh, the good that might have been -
Lost, without a sigh!
Love that we once have saved
By a single word,
Thoughts conceived, but never penned,
Perishing unheard; -
Take the proverb to thine heart,
Take, and hold it fast -
‘The mill cannot grind
With the water that has past.’

" - Sarah Doudney
(1841-1926) English novelist and poet, best known as a children's writer and hymn-writer. She wrote this poem when she was 15 years old.

[Quote No.52989] Need Area: Mind > Plan
"[Poem: about formally re-imagining and re-setting goals and plans each year, for example with New Year's Resolutions.]

'Resolve'

As the dead year is clasped by a dead December,
So let your dead sins with your dead days lie.
A new life is yours, and a new hope. Remember,
We build our own ladders to climb to the sky.
Stand out in the sunlight of Promise, forgetting
Whatever the Past held of sorrow or wrong.
We waste half our strength in a useless regretting;
We sit by old tombs in the dark too long.

Have you missed in your aim? Well, the mark is still shining.
Did you faint in the race? Well, take breath for the next.
Did the clouds drive you back? But see yonder their lining.
Were you tempted and fell? Let it serve for a text.
As each year hurries by let it join that procession
Of skeleton shapes that march down to the Past,
While you take your place in the line of Progression,
With your eyes on the heavens, your face to the blast.

I tell you the future can hold no terrors
For any sad soul while the stars revolve,
If he will stand firm on the grave of his errors,
And instead of regretting, resolve, resolve.
It is never too late to begin rebuilding,
Though all into ruins your life seems hurled,
For see how the light of the New Year is gilding
The wan, worn face of the bruised old world.

" - Ella Wheeler Wilcox

"[Poem:- about carefully imagining and planning what you want in the new year]

'A New Year'

Here's a clean year,
A white year.
Reach your hand and take it.
You are
The builder,
And no one else can make it.
See what it is
That waits here,
Whole and new;
It's not a year only,
But a world
For you!

"[Poem: about the benefits of finding and planning for enjoyment - for example initiative, motivation and persistence - in what you have to do as well as what you do to relax]

'Discovery'

I wished to shirk my task one day:
I much preferred some pleasant play.
But when the work I'd once begun,
'Twas full of interest, joy and fun.

The dust removed from off my books
Brought happy thoughts and cheerful looks.
Weeds, in the garden, put to rout,
Made beauty blossom round about.

Why use my time and strength and skill
In hard-wrought play, to serve me ill?
Why from sure pleasure should I shirk,
Since there is play in pleasant work?

Some people consider this rhyme above to be obsolete in comparison to the Knuckle Mnemonic, on the grounds that the Knuckle Mnemonic may be easier to memorize and harder to forget or mix up:- use both hands, extended in front of you so next to each other with palms down. Form fists so knuckles are still uppermost but now easier to see. Count knuckles as 31 days, depressions between knuckles as 30 (or 28/29) days. Start with the little finger knuckle of the left hand as January, and count one finger or depression at a time to the right towards the index finger knuckle (July), saying the months as you go. Then (swapping hands) jump to the right fist's index finger knuckle for August, finishing on the knuckle of the right ring finger (December).

"[Here are the thirteen virtues that Benjamin Franklin set for himself throughout his life, in his own words, plus his added commentary, as he defined them in 1741 and wrote them in his autobiography for the edification and emulation of his children and those who read his autobiography:] --- Temperance. Eat not to dullness; drink not to elevation. --- Silence. Speak not but what may benefit others or yourself; avoid trifling conversation. --- Order. Let all your things have their places; let each part of your business have its time! --- Resolution. Resolve to perform what you ought; perform without fail what you resolve! --- Frugality. Make no expense but to do good to others or yourself; i.e., waste nothing. --- Industry. Lose no time; be always employ'd in something useful; cut off all unnecessary actions. --- Sincerity. Use no hurtful deceit; think innocently and justly, and, if you speak, speak accordingly. --- Justice. Wrong none by doing injuries, or omitting the benefits that are your duty. --- Moderation. Avoid extreams; forbear resenting injuries so much as you think they deserve. --- Cleanliness. Tolerate no uncleanliness in body, cloaths, or habitation. --- Tranquillity. Be not disturbed at trifles, or at accidents common or unavoidable. --- Chastity. Rarely use venery but for health or offspring, never to dulness, weakness, or the injury of your own or another's peace or reputation. --- Humility. Imitate Jesus and Socrates." - Ben Franklin
From his book, 'The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin'.

One group of students was given a lecture on the importance of the vaccine. Afterwards the students proclaimed they were convinced about the benefits after hearing the lecture and planned to get their shots. But in the end only 3% of them actually did. The second group of students was given the same exact lecture. Only this time they were given a map of the campus to show them exactly where the health clinic was.

"[A story - with a message about planning and preparation defeating fear and worry:] 'Sleeping Through the Storm' A young man applied for a job as a farmhand. When the farmer asked for his qualifications, he said, 'I can sleep when the wind blows.' This puzzled the farmer. But he liked the young man, and hired him. A few days later, the farmer and his wife were awakened in the night by a violent storm. They quickly began to check things out to see if all was secure. They found that the shutters of the farmhouse had been securely fastened. A good supply of logs had been set next to the fireplace. The young man slept soundly. The farmer and his wife then inspected their property. They found that the farm tools had been placed in the storage shed, safe from the elements. The tractor had been moved into the garage. The barn was properly locked. Even the animals were calm. All was well. The farmer then understood the meaning of the young man's words,'I can sleep when the wind blows.' Because the farmhand did his work loyally and faithfully when the skies were clear, he was prepared for the storm when it broke. So when the wind blew, he was not afraid. He could sleep in peace." - Unknown

He went to the boss and apologized, saying that he could not understand what was going on. 'When was the last time you sharpened your axe?' the boss asked. 'Sharpen? I had no time to sharpen my axe.

"[A story - with a message about the importance of taking regular breaks and occasional vacations:] 'The Two Lumberjacks' It was the annual lumberjack competition and the final was between an older, experienced lumberjack and a younger, stronger lumberjack. The rule of the competition was quite simply who could fell the most trees in a day was the winner. The younger lumberjack was full of enthusiasm and went off into the wood and set to work straight away. He worked all through the day and all through the night. As he worked, he could hear the older lumberjack working in another part of the forest and he felt more and more confident with every tree he felled that he would win. At regular intervals throughout the day, the noise of trees being felled coming from the other part of the forest would stop. The younger lumberjack took heart from this, knowing that this meant the older lumberjack was taking a rest, whereas he could use his superior youth and strength and stamina to keep going. At the end of the competition, the younger lumberjack felt confident he had won. He looked in front of him at the piles of felled trees that were the result of his superhuman effort. At the medal ceremony, he stood on the podium confident and expecting to be awarded the prize of champion lumberjack. Next to him stood the older lumberjack who looked surprisingly less exhausted than he felt. When the results were read out, he was devastated to hear that the older lumberjack had chopped down significantly more trees than he had. He turned to the older lumber jack and said: ‘How can this be? I heard you take a rest every hour and I worked continuously through the night. What's more, I am stronger and fitter than you old man’. The older lumberjack turned to him and said: ‘Every hour, I took a break to rest and sharpen my saw.’" - Unknown

"[A true story - with a message about being successful by picking a vocation and career that suits you and then spend time both imagining-dreaming-planning and then putting those plans into action:] 'Virtually No Competition' - While professional soccer is still struggling to find a firm foothold in the United States, in the 1970s the North American Soccer League marked the brave first attempt to introduce the game to American sports fans. While most teams had only limited success at best, one did manage to break through to genuine mainstream popularity - the New York Cosmos. It was the brainchild of Steve Ross, a passionate soccer fan who was also a major executive at Warner Communications. Max Ross told his son Steve:] In life there are those who work all day, those who dream all day, and those who spend an hour dreaming before setting to work to fulfil those dreams. Go into the third category because there's virtually no competition." - Max Ross
Father of the eventual CEO of Time Warner, Steve Ross. Quoted in ‘Once In A Lifetime - The Extraordinary Story Of The New York Cosmos’ by Gavin Newsham. Max Ross was a builder ruined in the stock market crash of 1929, who spent the Depression working as an oil burner salesman and so had given a lot of thought about how to advise his son on how to find fulfilment and success.

"[A poem: about the importance of doing what is important as soon as possible and not procrastinating:]

'The Clock of Life'

The clock of life is wound but once,
And no man has the power
To tell just when the hands will stop
At late or early hour.

To lose one’s wealth is sad indeed,
To lose one’s health is more,
To lose one’s soul is such a loss
That no man can restore.

The present only is our own,
So Live, Love, toil with a will
Place no faith in ‘Tomorrow’.......
......For the clock may then be still.

"[A story - with a message about the importance of taking breaks and vacations to relax and recreate:] 'Relaxation' - They say that Saint John the Apostle liked to play with his pet sparrow from time to time. One day a hunter came to visit him and was surprised to see such a famous man playing. He surely could and should be making better use of his time. So he asked him, ‘Why do you waste your time playing? Why devote so much attention to something as useless as a sparrow?’ Saint John looked at him in surprise and asked: ‘Why is the string on your bow not tight?’ ‘Oh, you can't keep it tight all the time,’ the hunter explained, ‘otherwise it loses its tension and becomes useless for shooting arrows.’ So Saint John told him in return: ‘My friend, just as you always release the tension on your bowstring, so you must release the tension inside of you and relax. If I don't relax and just play, I have no strength for any great undertaking. I don't even have the strength to do what I have to and what is necessary.’" - Unknown

"[A story - with a message about always think about dangers and risks as well as rewards when you are planning anything:] 'THINK TWICE BEFORE YOU ACT' Once upon a time there lived two frogs in a marsh. They were very happy with their lot there. But as the hot summer approached the marsh began to dry up. In a few days, the marsh got totally dry. So, the frogs decided to leave that place and look for some other shelter for themselves. Eventually they found a deep well. They sat on its edge and peered inside. It had a lot of water in it. The younger of the two frogs got so overjoyed to see the water that it at once said, ‘This well looks like a perfect place for us to live. It will be cool and safe inside. Let's jump in?’ The other frog was old and wise and replied, ‘Not so soon, my friend. We left the marsh when it had dried up. So, first let us think how we shall get out of this well if it too becomes dry. The first frog was speechless, realizing how close they had come to making a mistake. He thanked the older, wiser frog for this lesson in thinking ahead and looking for dangers as well as pleasures." - Unknown

[Quote No.54604] Need Area: Mind > Plan
"As I think back over the years, I have been guided by four principles for decision making. First, the only certainty is that there is no certainty. Second, every decision, as a consequence, is a matter of weighing probabilities. Third, despite uncertainty we must decide and we must act. And lastly, we need to judge decisions not only on the results, but on how they were made. Most people are in denial about uncertainty. They assume they're lucky, and that the unpredictable can be reliably forecast. This keeps business brisk for palm readers, psychics, and stockbrokers, but it's a terrible way to deal with uncertainty. If there are no absolutes, then all decisions become matters of judging the probability of different outcomes, and the costs and benefits of each. Then, on that basis, you can make a good decision." - Robert Rubin

[Quote No.54746] Need Area: Mind > Plan
"[Imagine and] Set long term goals and work backwards to the present. Sometimes success is a curse, because you can’t imagine what’s beyond any particular near term accomplishment. Imagine where you want to be at 60, or 65, or 70 and define the steps needed to get there. It’s too easy to get caught up in your day to day and wake up one day to say 'This is not my beautiful life'." - Nick Colas

[Quote No.54914] Need Area: Mind > Plan
"You have to decide what your highest priorities are and have the courage -- pleasantly, smilingly, non-apologetically -- to say 'no' to other things. And the way you do that is by having a bigger 'yes' burning inside. The enemy of the 'best' is often the 'good'!" - Stephen R. Covey

[Quote No.54941] Need Area: Mind > Plan
"[A plan is just a prioritised, sequenced 'to do' checklist:] Today we find ourselves in possession of stupendous know-how, which we willingly place in the hands of the most highly skilled people. But avoidable failures are common, and the reason is simple: the volume and complexity of our knowledge has exceeded our ability to consistently deliver it - correctly, safely or efficiently. In this groundbreaking book ['The Checklist Manifesto'], Atul Gawande makes a compelling argument for the checklist, which he believes to be the most promising method available in surmounting failure. Whether you're following a recipe, investing millions of dollars in a company or building a skyscraper, the checklist is an essential tool in virtually every area of our lives, and Gawande explains how breaking down complex, high pressure tasks into small steps can radically improve everything from airline safety to heart surgery survival rates. Fascinating and enlightening, 'The Checklist Manifesto' shows how the simplest of ideas could transform how we operate in almost any field." - Atul Gawande
staff member of Brigham and Women's Hospital, the Dana Farber Cancer Institute, and the New Yorker magazine. He is also Associate Professor of Surgery at Harvard Medical School, Associate Professor in the Department of Health Policy and Management at the Harvard School of Public Health and author of the book the quoted blurb describes 'The Checklist Manifesto'.
