Ok, George, You’re On

It is never too late to be what you might have been.

The quote above is from George Eliot.  I have heard versions of this saying a lot, but when I asked Google for the words to the exact quote, I learned that George was not George at all, but Mary Ann Evans.  So it seems even more fitting that my guiding quote to achieving my BHAG is from a fellow female.

My BHAG (big hairy audacious goal, a phrase I read about in the book Good to Great) is to pursue a dream I had over 30 years ago.  My intention for the new year is to begin the process of turning that dream into a reality and write about it, here, each week.  I’m not much of a writer, but as Brian Tracy says, “Anything worth doing is worth doing poorly at first.”

So George, I’m putting you to the test and I plan to prove you right.
