I noted Patricia's quote for this week: "You can't have a better tomorrow if you are thinking about yesterday all the time." by Charles F. Kettering. So I thought I'd look into this man to see why his quote is meaningful.
Mr. Kettering is a pretty significant individual, actually. He was an inventor and held 186 patents. He founded Delco and was the head of research for General Motors from 1920 to 1947. You can read more about him on Wikipedia by clicking on the link. Pretty impressive, right?
Interestingly, he is also recognized for many quotes.
"Thinking is one thing no one has ever been able to tax."
"There exist limitless opportunities in every industry. Where there is an open mind, there will always be a frontier."
"Every time you tear a leaf off a calendar, you present a new place for new ideas and progress."
"My interest is in the future because I am going to spend the rest of my life there."
It would seem to me that Mr. Kettering is a great example to us for his frame of mind and his representation of successful living. I think I'll just keep these quotes in mind as I look at what is ahead of me in my tomorrow. I'm currently writing a novel about two individuals who have to put yesterday behind them to arrive at a fulfilling relationship, so this quote is timely for me.
What does your tomorrow look like? Do you see a favorite quote to put on your refrigerator?
Have a wonderful weekend!
