Better Late Than Never

4 o'clock on a Friday is probably a little late for doing a Friday blog. But you know what, better late than never.

Late bloomers are those folks who, like simmering pots, take awhile to get up to boiling temperature. The number of folks who didn't hit their stride until their 50s, 60s, 70s, or later is legion. In business, sports, the arts, spirituality, and other important pursuits and areas of life it might take some people awhile before they get it, before they understand their power, or before they put 2 and 2 together.

Once these folks understand what they want and how the game works, though, you'd better watch out! They can get up to speed and pass many of their contemporaries like lightening.

The writer George Eliot provided my favorite all-time quote: It is never to late to be who you might have been.

Better late than never.
