Quotes of the Day

"Planning is an unnatural process, it's much more fun to get on with it. The real benefit of not planning is that failure comes as a complete surprise and is not preceded by months of worry."
-Sir John Harvey-Jones, late host of the BBC television show, Troubleshooter, in which he advised struggling businesses.

"Have you ever asked God for something and didn't expect to get it? That's why you didn't get it. God works in our lives according to faith. So many times we say, "God, please guide me!' and we walk away not even waiting for guidance. We just immediately start to work. We say, "God, I want you to give me wisdom, help me make the right decision.' But we don't really expect Him to do that. We think it all depends on us."
- Rick Warren
