Other About

I really feel like my goal, and I don't always achieve it, is to do the best work I can do, and stay out of the results. Because ultimately, the result is not what the work is about.

Own Movie

You want to have enough of a profile to be able to do all the work you can, but at the same time you want to have your own space.

- Apolo Ohno

Use Mass

Countries such as Iraq, Iran, Libya and Syria, which support terrorist organizations and use terror to achieve their objectives, are precisely the same countries working tirelessly to acquire weapons of mass destruction.

Other About

Writing has taught me a lot - though far from everything - about writing, so as time has passed, it has become more pleasurable if not easier.

And, of course, you never achieve what you set out to achieve, so you must keep on trying to do better.

Every Day I Write

My personal opinion is that, if you're a professional writer, that you do have quotas. So every day I do try to write 800-1,200 words. I don't always achieve it, and the reality is that a lot of the words I write will end up on the cutting-room floor.

- Chris Bohjalian

- Chris Christie

Doing About

I know we can fix our problems. When there are people in the room who care more about doing the job they were elected to do than they worry about winning reelection, it is possible to work together, achieve principal compromise, and get results for the people who give us these jobs in the first place.

- Chris Christie

Leadership About

Ultimately, leadership is not about glorious crowning acts. It's about keeping your team focused on a goal and motivated to do their best to achieve it, especially when the stakes are high and the consequences really matter. It is about laying the groundwork for others' success, and then standing back and letting them shine.

Week How Much Time

Your to-do list should include items that need to be accomplished for the month, the week, and each day. You must then ask yourself how much time you need to block off to achieve each task. Time blocking allows you to minimize distractions and to maximize your efficiency as you work to complete this list.

- Clay Clark

Entertainment

My belief is that if I can achieve that level of entertainment by making the audience happy or sad or angry, then I have succeeded as an actor and have done my job. The profits and the fame as an actor will eventually surface, but first and foremost comes the work as an actor.

- Cole Hauser

Reason Rather

The reason it has taken so long for the robotics industry to move forward is because people keep trying to make something that is cool but difficult to achieve rather than trying to find solutions to actual human problems. Technology can be extremely expensive if you don't focus.

- Colin Angle

Artist Very

I'm living as an artist, and that's a staggering feeling, it's a total luxury. And because you have this amazing chance, with so much freedom, I'm determined to make something that is worth that. I feel this responsibility - to create something that makes an audience feel, which takes them somewhere. But that's very hard to achieve.

- Conor McPherson

Access Fought

Civil rights leaders, including my husband and Albert Turner, have fought long and hard to achieve free and unfettered access to the ballot box.

- Coretta Scott King

Myself Will

I see myself as the best footballer in the world. If you don't believe you are the best, then you will never achieve all that you are capable of.

Individually Sport

Baseball is not a sport you can achieve individually.

- Daniel Snyder

Happy Very

How any person decides to emphasize strengths and mitigate weaknesses is something people have to figure out for themselves. I'm wary of the self-help literature that suggests there are certain rules. I'm very happy for people to look at my story and say it's possible to achieve many things.

- Daniel Tammet

Think Commercial

As far commercial success, I don't think that's a focus but it's not that we don't enjoy that. It's not something you can attempt and achieve.

- Davey Havok

Gift Increased

Sometimes we may ask God for success, and He gives us physical and mental stamina.

He may bestow upon us conviction and confidence as we strive to achieve worthy goals.

- David A. Bednar

- David Amram

Success Rather

Success isn't something you achieve by accident, but rather by design.

- David H. Murdock

Away Point

I'm at a point where I'm going where the journey leads me. I've set goals but I don't get really hung up if I don't achieve those goals right away or in my time, you know what I mean?

Forward Historic

I look forward to a time, in the not so distant future, when we no longer look forward to 'firsts' as milestones women have yet to achieve, but we look back on them as historic events that continue to teach and inspire.

- Joan Smalls

Honor Becoming

Since becoming mayor in 2009, Julian has worked tirelessly to pursue policies that honor the aspirations of the people he represents. I'm proud that my brother has achieved his dreams, but I'm even more proud of the work he's done to help others achieve theirs.

- Joaquin Castro

Plane Brought

- Joe Bastianich

American Feel

I've achieved 'the American dream.' I feel it's my duty to help others achieve their vision, too - especially the youth.

- Joe Frazier

Been Long Period

As a longtime practitioner of yoga and a person who's been involved in physical fitness my whole life, I can tell you, yoga helps you achieve altered states of consciousness. It is not just stretching. The only way you can say that it's stretching is if you haven't done it, or that you haven't done it rigorously for a long period of time.

- Joe Rogan
