Best 10 quotes about GTD:


  1. Just because you are struggling does NOT mean you are failing.  Every great success requires some kind of struggle to get there.
  2. It doesn’t matter if you’ve failed or if you’ve been beaten.  All that matters is that you learn something, get back up, and try again.  Because winning is a good feeling, but winning when nobody else thought you could is an awesome feeling.
  3. Stop beating yourself up.  You are a work in progress; which means you get there a little at a time, not all at once.  Read The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.
  4. ‘Finished last’ will always be better than ‘Did not finish’, which always trumps ‘Did not start.’
  5. Don’t think too much, or you’ll create a problem that wasn’t even there in the first place.
  6. Thinking too long about doing something is often the reason it never gets done.
  7. If you truly want to change your life, you must first change your mind.
  8. Most great things in your life won’t happen by chance, they will happen by choice
  9. Do not wait until the conditions are perfect to begin.  Beginning makes the conditions perfect.
  10. Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try.
