Monday Quotable

"You don't have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great." -Joe Sabah

Today's quote is inspired by several of my friends who have uprooted their lives over the last year, relocated and started over. Some have traveled through Europe for a few months before moving to a new city. Some have moved to small towns after being burned out by NYC. Some have moved to other metropolitan places that offer the diversity of a large city but at a slower pace of life or a better cost of living. Most didn't know anyone when they moved but they were dead set on starting over. They are on their journeys to create their best lives. And really, that is the point. You may not have to relocate to "start" on whatever you are passionate about. You just have to let go of fear (or procrastination) and take the first step. Your step may land you in another country or it may land you right in your house at your desk sketching out your plans. As long at it is a step forward, it is a step in the right direction. Here's to greatness. Happy Monday!
