43 Folders has a good quote to begin the new year

43 Folder’s Merlin Mann’s blog:

I can’t think of a better way to welcome 2007 than by sharing this quote, which [Steven] Pressfield borrows (p.122) from the Scottish mountain climber W. H. Murray:

Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents, meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamt would have come his way.
