Bucket of Squash

Food for Thought


I love these words. I believe it’s a modified version of Bill Gate’s quote, “Most people overestimate what they can do in one year and underestimate what they can do in ten years.”, but please tell me if this version has an actual author/sayer! Very few things I’ve read lately have rang truer to me than this saying and I need to put this on my wall. Note to self: think beyond the to-do list, think about the bigger picture, and be patient. Always remember to be patient.

    This is something I am really trying to learn. Not to get caught up in the small details and remember good things take time. Patience is such a hard lesson to learn.

    Patience is something I’m struggling with career wise right now so this post couldn’t come sooner. Thank you for sharing.

    Right on, Rashi! Couldn’t agree more with this. Little steps each day will make all the difference in the long run…nothing was ever achieved overnight. :) Hope you have a lovely weekend!

    This is a great quote and exactly what I needed to hear. I am about to start my PhD and I am so overwhelmed just by the thought of it that I am struggling to even work out how I might begin to attack it. But this really helps. Thanks!!
