Welcome new subscribers. I do enjoy saying that! As we continue to add new readers each week I would appreciate getting to know all of you — so feel free to click on the contact link above and tell me what you like, what we can improve, and what you don't like. You don't have to remind me that you read the letter for Cameron's Corner. I already know that! :)

As we approach the end of the year, it's time to focus on going, doing, and being. It's a life lesson that we all need to review and focus on. Yes, all of us. Me and you, you and me. No, not the kids, they already know.

Enjoy the quotes this week, they apply to the article below as well as the article last week on time.

Some of the products I recommend I do receive a commission on to help pay for the mailing of the newsletter. I do not recommend anything unless I have used it or someone I trust has recommended it. I use the mind mapping listed below and have just upgraded my program. I have to tell you, mind mapping works, is good, and helps me and many others in business and planning. If you haven't gotten it, do yourself a favor and get it.

Next week there is a special offering from Eldon Taylor. I have read all of his books, they are in the bookstore on the left, and I have some of his tapes. Check his books out now and be sure to check out the special offering next week. It can be for you, a holiday gift, or both. You must have been warned against letting the golden hours slip by. Yes, but some of them are golden only because we let them slip by.

Thanks to those of you who attended the ONE SALE tele seminar. The next one is the BUCKET LIST tele seminar. Do sign up for it.


PS: Why is the BUCKET LIST important to You?

Inspiring Quotations

" For disappearing acts, it's hard to beat what happens to the eight hours supposedly left after eight of sleep and eight of work."

-Doug Larson

"One of the illusions of life is that the present hour is not the critical, decisive hour. Write it on your heart that every day is the best day of the year."

— Ralph Waldo Emerson

"The more sand that has escaped from the hourglass of our life, the clearer we should see through it."

-Jean-Paul Sartre

"When a man sits with a pretty girl for an hour, it seems like a minute. But let him sit on a hot stove for a minute - and it's longer than any hour. That's relativity. "

-Albert Einstein

"You must have been warned against letting the golden hours slip by. Yes, but some of them are golden only because we let them slip by."

-James Matthew Barrie

"I 'GO DO and BE'
and then Pop gets mad as I am doing my thing,
and he wants me to do something else.
Now, he's telling you to go, do and be. hmmmm..."

I am going more and doing more. I am being me and that is a challenge to my parents at times. School will be coming soon. Plus, I am looking forward to the holiday season.

Pop put the boat away. All his talk about sailing late in the season and then he tells me it's too cold and time to winterize the boat. I can't wait for a warm day and ask him why he's not sailing. Me, I'd still be sailing if I were allowed.

Pop said I'd have to live to 150 to complete my bucket list. I told him my list is not yet complete.

It’s time. It’s time for you to go, to do, and to be.

To be something you have to act it and in acting it you are it. The first is the worst, and the first is the current best.

It’s time to stop thinking, dreaming, and wondering when you will get time to start. Go to it now. Do it now. Be it now. Put pen to paper now. Clean the first drawer now. Do the first Google search now. Begin.

Too often we waste hours, days, and weeks thinking about the big project, the thing we need to do when we get time. We don’t always know all the steps, which we rarely know, so we don’t start.

Start. Go. Do. Be. In the starting, the rest of the steps will unfold. It’s like, when the student is ready the teacher will appear. It’s that simple.

If you start, if you go, you will find your way. Sure, you’ll find some dead ends, but you need to find them to find the right path for you. It’s all in the starting, the going, the doing and the being.

If you want to be a student and to get a degree, sign up for at least one course. If you want to start your own business, get a mentor and start part time. Learn the business from someone first.

Time marches on. Time lost is never regained. It’s not a fight against time, it’s time that we all have, and we all decide how to use it. If we waste it, it’s gone.

Starting is the toughest part of doing anything. Starting the journey will help to motivate you to continue on. Seeing progress makes you feel good and want more.

Kids are great role models. They see something they want to do and they do it. They don’t fret, they don’t worry, they don’t wait for another time. They jump in, they do it, or they work at it until they do it. Kids use time to reach their goals. Kids get into action and they do it until they can do it.

Fear and worry stop us from going, doing, and being. But, once we do it, we realize the fear and worry were unnecessary. We realize we can do it, and then we wonder why we waited so long. Life is short. Do it now. Start now.

You can always find an excuse as to why you have to wait. You can always find something else to do. The reality is, if it means something to you, then you should start. Maybe you have to finish something first, and that is fine. Finish the current project, but schedule the desired one and start it when it’s scheduled.

Time lines work. Make a time line of your life, or at least the next few years and put your ‘bucket list’ of things you want to do on that line. That’s the schedule. You may not have time for all of them. Fine. Do the most important ones. The key is to decide what you want to do, schedule it, and then do it.
