Vickie’s Favorite Quotes: Paul Theroux

One of my favorite quotes by Paul Theroux is “I cannot make my days longer so I strive to make them better.” When I shared this with a friend she replied, in a deprecatory tone, “Your friend Paul obviously wrote this before the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Thoughts for Success: The Time’s Got to Be the Time

I wish I could control when, how or what time of day my mind is going to have its best ideas, but ideas don’t care about time. For example, I’ve been known to change the title of a program right before publication of the program and then, everyone at the Institute from education to marketing and sales to accounting has to scramble to change every associated ANCC accreditation document, online platform content, postcard, catalog description, email campaign, advertisement, invoice, website and you get the picture.

Vickie’s Favorite Quotes: Nina George

Every day I hear from RNs who say “I waited XX years to finally take the CLNC® Certification Program. I should have done it sooner.” Waiting patiently for what we want is not a strategy for achieving it. That’s why I love the quote “Life wasn’t too short: it was too long to waste unduly on non-love, non-laughter and non-decisions.”

Vickie’s Favorite Quotes: Proverb

Reflecting on the events of 9/11 and the days following the horrific events, there were a fair share of pessimists who thought the world was over. Thank goodness there were more optimists than pessimists and America came out the other side changed in a positive way.

Vickie’s Favorite Quotes: Nelson Mandela

Nothing reduces stress more than a great vacation – at least once you get over the stress of traveling. Getting off the grid is never easy. Traditionally, no matter how busy I am, I make it my goal at least once a year to get far away, into something so different that it forces me out of my regular stress-relief routine into one that entirely disconnects me from my legal nurse consulting business and life’s routine challenges.

Thoughts for Success: There’s a Lot to Be Discovered in the Between Moments

Thanks to the COVID-19 global pandemic, I’m really missing travel to the remarkable, unique and remote parts of the world – actually travel to any part of the world. Thank goodness I have my screensaver photos, which serve as constant reminders of the incredible places I’ve been blessed to visit. Yesterday a photo of one of my favorite places came up, the Taktsang Palphug Monastery (also known as the “Tiger’s Nest”) in Bhutan.

Vickie’s Favorite Quotes: Thich Nhat Hanh

Like many of you, my social calendar has slowed down to a crawl as I navigate the new spikes in the COVID-19 pandemic. While that translates to more free time to relax, you might think a cup of healthy green tea first thing in the morning is not that essential, yet for me, it’s more vital than ever.
