We have a short message today. We hope you will find food for thought. We wish all of you a wonderful Easter weekend and a Happy Passover.
It seems to us that progress is made when you have a breakthrough. It seems to us that progress is made when you have a breakdown. We are not sure which comes first but we believe the key part of the equation is the first syllable in each of those words - "BREAK". When you have either a breakthrough or a breakdown you are changing what has been for what can be. This applies to all three aspects of improvement; body, mind and spirit.
In fact we contend it is entirely possible that a single incident, race, workout, thought
or feeling can be simultaneously a breakdown and a breakthrough.
The second thing comes from a source unknown to us but we liked it enough to believe it is true. Abe Lincoln said that if he were given 8 hours to chop down a tree he would spend 6 hours sharpening his axe.
