Quote of the Week

Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the ax. - Abraham Lincoln.


Okay, who thinks this has anything to do with chopping down a tree? Maybe it's about always keeping your axes sharp?

I think it is about being prepared for the task ahead. If you have a project to complete or problem to solve and are running on a deadline, it pays to take some time to prepare so you are not working out the solution on the fly.

Bottom line... being prepared will help you accomplish your tasks more easily.

  3. This is a hard one for me. While I agree with your take on this quote, I must confess I'm not always good at doing what you said. It's one of those life lessons that still a life lesson:~)
