It's time for you can't just stop bigask question of the day. Welcome to you can't just stop the place for quietlystubborn entrepreneurs with big goals and green after encountering hundreds of highachieving athletes contrepesons world changers. I've discovered that manytimes their impact comes from the questions they ask as much as theactions they take. That's why I invite you to answer a question each in everyday to reach your dol and now for today's Queston. What quote? Have I read recently thatinspired me? Well, coincidentally, I just read agreat quote the other day. So as soon as this question came up, I had aninstant answer and so I'll share with you. The quotethat came to my mind, we're going way back for this one. Itis. I find the great thing in this world isnot so much where we stand as in what...

...direction we are moving to reach theport of Heaven. We must sail sometimes with the wind and sometimes against it,but we must sail and not drift nor lie at anchor. I thought that was a really cool quote,and that is Oliver Wendell Holmes from eighteen, fifty eight. So that's goingway back for that quote, but the thing I liked about that roadyou, it would inspire me about it and mean it fits with this whole idea ofpriety stopping entrepreneurs. We need to keep moving. We need to keep doingthings we need to keep trying. We can't just sit and wait for it to come to us.We have to hoist the sail and we have to. Maybe we have to go with the wind.Maybe we have to go against the wind, you know. Maybe we have to go withconventional wisdom. Maybe we're going against conventional wisdom, we'regoing against the grain whatever it is. We have to do something we have tocreate. We have to move, and that's what I really liked about. That quotewas that it wasn't it's a very active quote. It inspires you to take action,and I just kind of like it, because...'s cool old timy language that wedon't use any more and it just it. Has This romanticismabout it right about being an entrepreneur and I'm not even sure thecontext of that quote if that's what he intended that to be or what the contextof that quote was, but just a really cool quote that I cameacross just the other day and thought would be perfect for this question seeyou tomorrow.
