A schedule defends from chaos and whim.  It is a net for catching days.  It is a scaffolding on which a worker can stand and labor with both hands at sections of time.

Spend the afternoon.  You can’t take it with you.

Annie Dillard Quotes

Aim for the chopping block.  If you aim for the wood, you have nothing.  Aim past the wood, aim through the wood; aim for the chopping block.

You can’t test courage cautiously.
