Best quote ever

Sometimes, you just see something or hear something that you want to remember forever and ever or share on all your social media accounts to make yourself look cool or smarter than you are.

You can’t help it – you just have to copy and paste.

I was flipping through Amazon wasting time, looking at books. One caught my attention – it was by Anne Lamott.

The description quote stated, “”Thirty years ago my older brother, who was ten years old at the time, was trying to get a report on birds written that he’d had three months to write. It was due the next day. We were out at our family cabin in Bolinas, and he was at the kitchen table close to tears, surrounded by binder paper and pencils and unopened books on birds, immobilized by the hugeness of the task ahead. Then my father sat down beside him, put his arm around my  brother’s shoulder, and said, ‘Bird by bird, buddy.  Just take it bird by bird.'”

What a concept, huh?

Bird by bird. It is great advice not just on writing – but life. Take everyday bird by bird.

Just thought I would share.
