In the last few weeks I have met with a number of fabulous people that I really admire and a common theme of those conversations has been that those people have a life motto. "Do Good Better" has been my motto for the last few years but I didn't realize that having a personal motto was a relatively common thing. I believe that having a motto is a grounding point that helps you become your aspirational self (uh huh, I got all Oprah on you, what do you think would happen after I've been on a staycation for a week?). Here are a few that I have recently heard:
Do or do not, there is no try- Yoda
It's only hubris if you fail-Julius Caesar
It's better to ask forgiveness than to seek permission
Go big or go home
What's your motto?
