Wednesday's Words of Wisdom

I don't wait for moods.  You accomplish nothing if you do that.  Your mind must know it has to get down to work.
~ Pearl Buck ~
Do you find yourself doing tasks based on whether or not you are in the mood to do them?  Do you find yourself saying, "I'm not going to do (fill in the blank) because I'm not in the mood"?  Or, "I'm in the mood to (fill in the blank)" so that's what I'll do today".  When I came across this quote, I realized that this is key to my success.  My lack of self discipline is getting in the way of my success, because I do things based on if I'm in the mood to do them or not!  This has come about since becoming an empty nester.  My time was my own and suddenly I could do whatever I wanted to, whenever I wanted to.  Five years later,  I'm struggling to do what needs to be done because of the mood attitude!  I hope this quote inspires or encourages you the way it did me!

Have a wonderful Wednesday!
