“If I had 8 hours to chop down a tree, I would spend 6 of those hours sharpening my axe.” – Abraham Lincoln
While I am not positive Abraham Lincoln was the first to say this, I do believe it is a powerful quote. Sometimes we don’t feel we have time to dedicate to learning, because there is so much to do. The catch is, all we have to do would be easier if we took time for learning.
In changing my mindset, I am really beginning to accept that I need to dedicate more time to learning. Practice makes progress.
Listen to this week’s episode:
I encourage you to ask yourself: What can I do today to dedicate time to sharpening my axe?
Hope you all are well. Have you gotten a chance to listen to my podcast yet? If not, I’m done with Episode 2 and the 3rd episode will be live this Friday. If you have iTunes, it is also available there. I’d love it if you could leave me a review once you’ve listened.
I love this topic because it is all about taking yourself off of autopilot and being more mindful. You might surprise yourself into finding your true calling. You never know!
