Happy Wednesday! Greetings from Bali. 🌴

Food for Thought

“The world gives to the givers and takes from the takers.” — Joe Polish

“Perfectionism is the voice of the oppressor, the enemy of the people. It will keep you cramped and insane your whole life, and it is the main obstacle between you and a shitty first draft. I think perfectionism is based on the obsessive belief that if you run carefully enough, hitting each stepping-stone just right, you won’t have to die. The truth is that you will die anyway and that a lot of people who aren’t even looking at their feet are going to do a whole lot better than you, and have a lot more fun while they’re doing it.” — Anne Lamott

“A society grows great when people plant trees whose shade they will never sit in.” — Greek Proverb
