Pinboard Worthy Quotes

To optimise your productivity, I strongly believe having a bright pinboard full of inspiration in your work space is key. An important addition to any  pinboard is an inspirational quote for you to look at instead of you computer screen  (irony at its finest). Here are some quotes (including some originals!) that you should print out and pin up immediately! 1) “& promise me you will shine in any universe you are orbiting in.” 2) “Your profession is not what brings home the weekly pay check, your profession is what you’re put here on earth to do, with such passion and such intensity that is becomes spiritual in calling” – Vincent Van Gogh 3) “It always seems impossible until it’s done”– Nelson Mandela 4) “There is plenty of sunshine between sunrise and sunset” 5) “I began to realise how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. If you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it full speed. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all became passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good.”– Roald Dahl 6) “Go to bed every night being grateful for something that happened in that day and excited for something happening the next day.” 7) “I’m still learning”– Michelangelo What is your favourite inspirational quote? #pinboardinspo

When I was choosing my year 11 subjects at school I had one spot to fill and it was actually my wonderful mum that suggested psychology. I absolutely loved psychology in both year 11 and year 12 and dreamed of being a clinical psychologist (at this point that was all I thought psychology was). So, when I was offered my first choice at university- a Bachelor of Psychology (Honours) that was what I went off to study. The question “what do you want to be when you’re older” sends shivers down that spine of many high school students. However, for me it was worse- all through my last year of high school I knew what I wanted to do. It was not until I started studying psychology that doubt arose and I genuinely could no longer answer that question. Did I want to be a psychologist? A teacher? A journalist? All these options crossed my mind, so much so that I was going […]
