Words to Live By…

This is day 17 of the Writer’s Circle challenge: a quote I try to live by

“Start as you mean to finish”

Some people attribute this tidbit to Steven Covey but I have also read that it is based on an old Quaker proverb. Either way, it’s good advice.

I keep it in mind with everything I do, in life and in business and you know what? It’s held true.

If I want to be paid a certain way (or at all) for my work, I am clear about it up front in the negotiation.

If I want Nikki to behave a certain way when we are going to an event, I am clear about the rules before we even leave.

If I want to eat all the cookies… oh wait… never mind that one.

But you get where I’m going with this, right?

It’s a guideline, a way to stay the path when you feel yourself going astray.

My other favourite quote?


Do you have a favourite quote that you live by?
