Monday Morning Message 1.7.19: Guideposts for 2019

Posted 2019-01-07 10:04am

Each January I choose 12 quotes, one for each month of the year, to serve as my guideposts for the coming year. My quotes for 2018 and 2017 can be found here: January 8, 2018 MMM /January 9, 2017 MMM

So here’s some wisdom to live by in 2019.
