A resolution for 2013

According to wikipedia, a motto is:

“a phrase meant to formally summarize the general motivation or intention of a social group or organization. A motto may be in any language, but Latin is the most used in the Western world. The local language is usual in the mottoes of governments. In informal ways, it can be a rule or slogan someone follows, or lives their life by”.

When I was a grad student, I came by a quote (don’t remember from whom), which I adopted as my personnel motto: Think big, work hard, smile always and good things will happen.

Good times and (especially) during the bad times – like getting a paper or grant proposal rejected –  it is there as a reminder of what must be done.

What is yours?

If you have none, why not adopting one this year?
