A new favorite quote

Jonathan Winters:
"If your ship doesn't come in, swim out to it."
I love this for a couple of reasons. Jonathan Winters was one of my favorites, a comedy genius and incredibly intelligent. (former radio personality too)

But mostly for the message. Opportunity must be created. People get wrapped up in the wait, an incredible waste of time.

I think there are more thoughts that can go along with that: sometimes you have to build your own ship; it's ok to start out with a rowboat, or even a raft, if you have to; any port in a storm, etc.

You're right, though, that sitting around waiting won't get you anywhere.
