Motivational Quotes

One of the many e-mail I receive during the week is a daily “Free Thought” from BeFreeForMe.com.  It’s typically a brief quote and I always find it worthwhile reading.  Today’s quote is very appropriate for me and my constant struggle with wanting everything to be perfect:

I’d also like to share the quotes I’ve posted around my office.  They are thoughts that motivate me to stay organized, positive, and driven.  Hopefully you enjoy them!
