Press on

Calvin Coolidge (1872-1933)

Press on. What does that mean to you?

Is it a decal that you place on your car bumper? How about the button you push on your microwave?

I suggest it’s the will to do what you need to do every day to reach your goal – no matter the obstacles in your way.

I’m reminded of a good friend who writes 5 blogs a day. I’ve told you about him before. His tireless efforts every day offer his readers encouragement and inspiration on a level they don’t get anywhere.

Except the Bible.

“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan “press on” has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.”
Calvin Coolidge, 30th President of the United States (1923-1929)

    David, thanks. It was a bit surreal reading your post. Yes, the work is tireless. The mission, priceless. Thanks for supporting the “cause”.

    • Jeff, I can see why. I wrote this post yesterday morning. My routine is to look for a quote first, then write the post. I don’t know ahead of time what others are posting. Or do I?

      Glad to support the cause. It’s one I truly believe in and I’m getting more consistent at implementing it in my life.

      Have an awesome Tuesday!
