    Hi Barry,

    My favorite one is “I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times.” – Bruce Lee because it encourages everyone to refine their skills. I bookmarked this post for daily inspiration. Thank you!

    Some great quotes. I think my favorite is #10 by Mark Twain “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do.” It’s so true, regret is a great motivator.

      It’s a great quote Frank and one I like to revisit from time to time. On a side note, I like to tell myself the quote doesn’t say: “Twenty years from now you will be glad you stayed late and worked weekends to help the company meet their deadlines and sales targets.”
