Quote of the day (#9): Plan in decades, live in days.

As I’m working on my Bachelor’s thesis (well,… reading stuff in order to eventually come up with a functioning proposal), I’ve found a good way to keep me motivated.

For each chapter of scientific (interesting yet sometimes quite complicated) piece of literature I read and understand, I get to read one piece of fun and inspiring online article.

One of those inspiring articles by Nic Haralambous stayed in my mind for a couple of days now – that’s why I’d like to share it with you today. It’s about some simple rules one can comply to in order to possibly live a more relaxed and fulfilled life.

My two favorites are:

Read every day.
Read everything you can.
Don’t just read about things you know about. Read about people. Read people.

and

Be patient. Nothing worth doing is worth doing quickly. Nothing worth building is worth building in a rush. Nothing of value is formed in a minute.
Plan in decades. Think in years. Work in months. Live in days.

Blogparade (#2): Be a Girl Who Travels

I recently read a wonderful blog post by Canadian blogger Hannah Logan. All of you travel lovers out there should check it out. It sums it all up! Thank you Hannah, for those beautifully written, inspiring words.

Be a girl who aspires to be more. Be a girl that others should look up to. Be a girl that makes her own decisions.

But most importantly; be a girl that you can look back at later in life, and be proud about what you have accomplished and who you are today.

Be a girl who travels.

Follow-up posts on this topic will be uploaded within the next few days – keep your eyes open for updates 🙂
