How to get ahead: Donna Karan

Donna Karan : “Time is your most valuable commodity and a precious resource. Prioritize! To me, that means putting aside time for what matters, including time to creatively recharge and meditate, as well as time to be with your family.”
[quote from ‘Grazia’ magazine January 18, 2010]



Fashion designer Karan is right. I don’t know about time to meditate, but I do put aside time to write. I have many writer friends with small children and jobs, who still manage to write by scheduling an hour in their diaries here and there.

Just thinking about writing, wishing you were writing, doesn’t put the words on the page.
