We’ve heard (and re-heard) the Abraham Lincoln quote to the point of ad nauseam, “Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the ax.”

It’s nice, in theory. But nowadays, the trouble isn’t in people refusing to prepare but rather people spending all their time preparing and not ever getting started.

Today, it’s initiative we are lacking. Not preparation.

There is a lot to be said for the person tenacious enough to just pick up the ax and start swinging.

One day these one minute writings will be a big book called “One Minute, Please.” Can I let you know when that day comes?

You can say yes, here.
