A Quote by Mitch on people, projects, toggling, and self-assessment

You can toggle between people or projects, but you need to realistically assess what you are toggling between.

A Quote by Thich Nhat Hanh on community, day, family, nations, projects, time, and uncertainty

If we are too busy, if we are carried away every day by our projects, our uncertainty, our craving, how can we have the time to stop and look deeply into the situation-our own situation, the situation of our beloved one, the situation of our family and of our community, and the situation of our nation and of the other nations?

A Quote by unknown on action, chance, clarity, day, depression, enthusiasm, future, helpful, ideas, justice, management, projects, reason, time, and work

Helpful Hints & Useful Ideas for Time Management: Throw out low-priority tasks that have sat around for longer than two weeks. Reason: Piled up work is depressing and chances are time will be just as short in the future as it is now. Better: Clear desk completely on a periodic basis. High Priority tasks. Use best time of day for tasks categorized as hot, ripe, or urgent. Hot projects require immediate action because of enthusiasm or timeliness. Ripe items have been boiling for a while and are now critical.

A Quote by unknown on expectation, planning, projects, and time

Carelessly planned projects take three times longer to complete than expected. Carefully planned projects take four times longer to complete than expected, mostly because the planners expect their planning to reduce the time it takes.

A Quote by unknown on belief, determination, impatience, mind, patience, planning, projects, and time

You may have great plans and may be impatient to carry them out now. Possibly you can. We usually can do far more than we have believed. But possibly the best time has not arrived and the best place selected. Then be patient while you persevere. Great things require time, and the important projects must pass through many stages. However, if you are determined to accomplish what you have in mind, and do your utmost as well as give yourself the required time, you will certainly do it. All things come to him who waits patiently while he works efficiently.

A Quote by Terence Kealey on america, computers, country, decisions, economics, electricity, future, generations, government, growth, losing, money, myth, power, projects, research, science, service, success, war, wealth, and world

There is a central myth about British science and economic growth, and it goes like this: science breeds wealth, Britain is in economic decline, therefore Britain has not done enough science. Actually, it is easy to show that a key cause of Britain's economic decline has been that the government has funded too much science. . . . Post-war British science policy illustrates the folly of wasting money on research. The government decided, as it surveyed the ruins of war-torn Europe in 1945, that the future lay in computers, nuclear power and jet aircraft, so successive administrations poured money into these projects-to vast technical success. The world's first commercial mainframe computer was British, sold by Ferrranti in 1951; the world's first commercial jet aircraft was British, the Comet, in service in 1952; the first nuclear power station was British, Calder Hall, commissioned in 1956; and the world's first and only supersonic commercial jet aircraft was Anglo-French, Concorde, in service in 1976. Yet these technical advances crippled us economically, because they were so uncommercial. The nuclear generation of electricity, for example, had lost 2.1 billion pounds by 1975 (2.1 billion pounds was a lot then); Concord had lost us, alone, 2.3 billion pounds by 1976; the Comet crashed and America now dominates computers. Had these vast sums of money not been wasted on research, we would now be a significantly richer country.

A Quote by Robert Francis Kennedy on apathy, boldness, commitment, contentment, courage, future, idealism, ideas, passion, problems, projects, reason, society, and timidity

The future does not belong to those who are content with today, apathetic toward common problems and their fellow man alike, timid and fearful in the face of bold projects and new ideas. Rather, it will belong to those who can blend passion, reason and courage in a personal commitment to the ideals of American society.

Robert F. Kennedy (1925 - 1968)

A Quote by Gaius Plinius Secondus Pliny, the Elder on business, improvement, manners, mind, power, and projects

The great business of man is to improve his mind, and govern his manners; all other projects and pursuits, whether in our power to compass or not, are only amusements.

A Quote by LaVell Edwards on football, future, good, projects, and retirement

Edwards commented as he signed an extension to his contract. We have good young players in the program and strong schedules in the coming years. The future looks bright for BYU football. I also want to get a number of projects off the ground before I retire.

A Quote by Jean-Paul Sartre on books, culture, projects, and purpose

All the same, they [books] do serve some purpose. Culture doesn't save anything or anyone, it doesn't justify. But it's a product of man: he projects himself into it, he recognizes himself in it; that critical mirror alone offers him his image.

Jean-Paul Sartre (1905 - 1980)
