I really do like this quote.
In itself, it's simplicity personified.
It reminds me that several times over the last few years during professional development sessions, we've focused on how to write and carry out simple yet effective goals.
One easy way presented to us involved thinking about a goal and the things you needed to STOP doing, and START doing in order to reach it.
For instance, if my goal is to create a bedtime ritual conducive to sleep, I need to STOP reading my iPad in bed, and START going to bed at the same time each night.
I also need to STOP drinking copious amounts of tea after 7 pm, and START eating my night time meal a little earlier so I have time to relax and unwind.
Once I've decided on my STOPS and STARTS, it's time to get busy and put them into action!
Just as Leonardo said.... do more of what works, and stop the things that don't.
Are there any goals you'd like to work on at the moment?
Any daydreams you'd like to see come to fruition?
Just in case, I've created a nice STOP/START goal worksheet (with Leonardo's quote to pretty it up) to help you out.
