With the Oscars approaching, I collected together some advice from the movies on time management, motivation and organizing.
|1. I can’t think about that right now. If I do, I’ll go crazy. I’ll think about that tomorrow.||A. Finding Nemo|
|2. Then where does the power come from, to see the race to its end? From within.||B. Troy|
|3. Sucking the marrow out of life doesn’t mean choking on the bone||C. Steel Magnolias|

|5. Forty years old — and I haven’t done a thing that I’m proud of.||E. The Green Mile|

|7. These people took the time to write to us. Tomorrow, we might not be around to write back.||G. Gone With The Wind|
