Renewed Focus or Renewed Effort
After a long, hard winter, spring is finally here. As the weather turns and nature reveals its beauty once again, it is no wonder that everywhere we turn we hear someone talking about spring as a season of renewal.
Such conversations often turn to topics of renewed focus or renewed effort on our parts.
Woody Allen once famously said that “80% of success in life is just showing up.” That may indeed be true. But what I think is also true is that success more often than not depends on not quitting.
Of course it is important to set a worthy goal, then to take action in pursuit of that goal by showing up and working hard, but persistence and perseverance should never be underestimated.
So whether we want to talk about this season as one of renewal or a season of persistence and perseverance, I think we will all be well served if we keep our eyes on the goal, work hard and work together, and don’t quit until we have achieved our goals
