Eisenhower is credited with saying “In preparing for battle I have always found that plans are useless, but planning is indispensable.” On a day-to-day basis, I operate with a simplified version of the above, “No plan survives contact with reality.” This reminds me to stop fixating on planning things to the nth degree when I have an open-ended problem that is not well defined. Doing a massively fancy and detailed plan for a poorly defined problem is rife with assumptions that can be partially to completely incorrect. Read more>>

Britt Ramjit | Digital Creator & Graphic Designer

My absolute favorite quote is “everything happens for a reason”. I truly believe in what’s meant for you will find its way to you and learning to trust in the process of your life. For as long as I can remember I have always been a planner of my life — achieve this by a certain age, get married by this age etc. and now at 25 years old I have come to the realization that whatever is meant as my destiny will find its way to me. There is nothing I can do about it, I can’t speed it up, I can’t slow it down, I can’t change anything because whatever that looks like for me, is meant for me and me only. It took a lot of ups and downs in life but I can finally say that I no longer plan my life out, I’m living for each day, doing things that make me happy, surrounding myself with people who make me a better person and working towards my goals.

Chrissy Carpenter | Actress & founder of TrixiSoCal Clothing Brand

With being a creative thru and thru and taking chances not just in acting, but in launching a clothing brand, I definitely have a favorite quote as well as a favorite affirmation. My favorite quote (which is actually tattooed on me!) is “Without Bravery Our Lives Will Remain Small”, I think I read that in “Big Magic”. My favorite affirmation (which, there’s a great chance I’ll get that tattooed on me as well!) is – “Everything Is Always Working Out For Me”, by Esther Hicks. Read more>>

“The trouble is, you think you have time.” – Jack Kornfield I stumbled upon this quote years ago, and have been stuck on it ever since. I adore this quote because it reminds me of what is important to me. It impacts my decisions, it reduces regret. It leads me to experiences that makes me feel fulfilled and alive. Life is short; do the thing, call the person, say “I Love You” as much as you possibly can, and be kind. Read more>>
