"The race is not always to the swift, but to those who keep on moving." - Ecclesiastes 9:11
"Many start strong but few finish well" - especially if the finish line is never quite in sight - or keeps moving.
Too often, we define success by the outcomes that others decide are important" - By allowing the person we are trying to help define success - we are assured that 100% of their time will be used to either advance or hinder or adapt the success they defined - until they run out of time - and then perhaps what they accomplished may help others - which might have been the desired outcome. Our role becomes one to adapt rather than one to judge.
"I hadn't failed at all - I just wasn't finished yet" - Many years ago I read that often we judge others by their outcomes and ourselves by our intentions. Alignment is an important part of this work - integrity is an essential component of alignment - how do we determine our integrity?
"Transformation requires an eternal outlook" - "How do I do good better today than I did yesterday?" - "Then you only have to be willing to walk together, as long as it takes."
