Martin Luther King Jr Day 2018

Your 2017 Planner

 Bring on 2017 because you’re golden! Goodbye 2016 because 2017 promises to be another great year. Now is a great time to get your 2017 planner in gear and really cull priorities so you can hit the ground running so you can really hit the water rowing in the New Year. My plan for 2017 is to cut back on the mundane as much as possible to create more time. I’m filling my planner with all the right stuff and leaving the mediocre behind. 

Never had a planner?  Check out this post from 2014 for a blast from the past that still applies to your present and future planning. 

“Before you cross the street take my hand. Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.”

-John Lennon, Beautiful Boy (Darling Boy) from the album Double Fantasy (1981).

Great Quotes and Boats

“I don’t for a moment think I am any braver or better than anybody else. This is how I attempt to explain what gives me the strength to do what I do; when that thunderbolt of an idea first hit me and inspired me to row across oceans, it filled me with a sense of purpose so strong that it overcame my fears. Even when boredom, frustration, fatigue or despair threatened to overwhelm me, it was that powerful sense of purpose that kept me going.”

-Roz Savage, Rowing the Atlantic: Lessons Learned on the Open Ocean.
