i-TFTD #228: On Choices

#228-1. The bad news is time flies. The good news is you are the pilot.
-Michael Altshuler

#228-2. The best way to have a good idea is to have lots of ideas.
-Linus Pauling

#228-3. History has demonstrated that the most notable winners usually encountered heartbreaking obstacles before they triumphed. The won because they refused to to become discouraged by their defeats.
-B C Forbes

It is a simple but harsh truth that each of us has 24 hours and we choose to fill it with things that we value at the moment. Even when we say, "I have no choice but to do this..." what we mean is that I am giving this (or the person wanting this) a higher priority than some other things I wish to do.

In the world of creative/lateral thinking, quantity leads to quality. Most of our genius is undiscovered because of mental laziness.

Getting discouraged or feeling demotivated is also a choice we make. Simply starting to use positive words and phrases to describe situations itself helps in a big way. Try it.
