To reach a port, we must set sail.  Sail, not lie at anchor.  Sail, not drift.  ~Oliver Wendell Holmes


We’re embarking on a Big Adventure this month. Every day we’re preparing ourselves so that we can take a leap toward our dreams on Leap Day, Monday, February 29th.

Woo Hoo!

In order to do that, we must follow the advice of today’s quote: we must set sail, not stay at anchor and not drift, but rather to set sail.

This means we can’t do things the same old way and hope that we get different results;

It means we can’t dilly-dally or procrastinate or drag our feet;

This means that we need to hold steady on our course in spite of other people’s opinions or our own doubts and second-guessings.

Your homework today is to set sail by taking the next step. Break it down into bits and jots that you can quickly and easily do–and then do them!

You can do it, I believe in you!

I’m proud of you!

Your Friend and Pep Pal,


PS: Remember: we can stay close to shore if we need to and we can go at a comfortable pace. The point is to be going, to be sailing.
