The 1000th Blog

Today is the 1000th blog for The Perfect Workday.

Thanks for reading!

Started the blog in 2008. Lots has happened since then.

In the last four years there have been victories and setbacks, celebrations and licking-wounds, peace and confusion, joy and sadness.

There are lots of quotes saying we learn more from defeat than success, but I think you’d agree the successes sure are more fun, more profitable and easier to take.

As the cliché goes, “It is what it is,” or “It was what it was.”

I wouldn’t want to go back through the last four years

However, I’ve been thinking a lot about the time and I believe I’ve learned some important lessons. I’m going to take the victories of the last 48 months and expand on them.

Take a moment and remember some of the wins of your last four years—great or small—and expand on them.

You are not your defeats. They were simply bumps in the road and bumps are going to appear when you’re living your life and not someone else’s.

As says my favorite quote, “There is only one success, to be able to spend your life in your own way.” (Englishman Philip Marley)

Thanks again for reading.

Have a great 1,000th day!
