Just do it!

  1. 21
    For all those out there hemming & hawing over whether to start school ("Am I too old?") or change careers ("Should I do this?") or just have the "What if's" in general, I saw a quote this morning that made me think of all of you:

    "You don't have to be GREAT to start, but you have to START to be great!"

    Have a good day!!

    Wholeheartedly agree. Became an LPN @age 39. At age 56, became an RN and was hired and am currently working @Cleveland Clinic Foundation. You can accomplish whatever you commit to.

    AWESOME!!!! Thank you for the great quote. One that has stuck with me, that I've shared on different threads:

    I'm glad I saw this just what I needed to read I've been talking myself out of going back to school lately mostly because I'm scared of all the what ifs. Thank you for sharing.

    Thank you for this post!! I was a MA at 18 & knew that I wanted to be a nurse but my life led me down a different path. Fast forward to when I was 38, I lost my house & what I felt was everything (relationship break up). I was working full time & put myself thru LVN school. I graduated, I am taking my RN pre-req's at 41 & am a proud LVN working in a hospital. I am a true testament that it is NEVER too late to follow your dreams.
