Great Ideas #BeWoW #WritersQuoteWednesday 

As the old year winds down I usually do a little assessment of it and “grade” it according to my judgement. While I look at all aspects of my life, I focus primarily on the spiritual side. I’m not done with my assessment as of this writing; I’m writing on Monday, scheduling for today. 

I don’t “do” resolutions; studies and personal experience show they don’t work. But last year I discovered this idea of One Word; focus on a single word for the year and see how it works in your life. I liked it. I’m in the process of getting my word for 2016 now. 

As I’ve been pondering the last year I came across this quote I wanted to share. CD Jackson Quote 

Great ideas need landing gear as well as wings. – Charles Douglas Jackson

In setting goal and making plans we tend to go big; there’s nothing wrong with that. However, it seems most of the time we don’t have a full plan for getting from where we are to where we want to be. Then when the inevitable fork in the road comes we are lost. 

This year I pray that we each have a happy, healthy, blessed year. And I hope we all get our landing gear in order before we see out on our trips. 

Although I know there’s not an official Writers Quote Wednesday this week, I figured that shouldn’t stop me from linking to it anyhow. As far as I know Ronovan’s BeWoW is still on but I may be wrong in that. Nevertheless, this post is linked to both.

  1. Wonderful post, Greg. It’s very encouraging. Love the quote. If I had to choose a word for 2016 it would have to be ‘forgiveness’. I’m going to focus on this word for 2016. I wish you and your loved ones happiness, good health, and love for 2016 and years to come. ❤

    1. Thank you, Vashti. That is an excellent word to focus on. I think my word maybe “stewardship”; better use of my time, talents, and treasures. And I pray the same good for you and yours 🙂
