Horace Mann meets Tina Burkhardt

quotes about change Tina Burkhardt and Horace mann

New years come with a good opportunity to change our habits. We have asked two experts for some brief advice: The elder statesman and inventor of modern education Horace Mann and our slightly younger spokeswoman of habit change Tina Burkhardt.

Tina: “We can all go incredibly far if we finally take the first step of a journey, which is always the most difficult.”

Horace: “Yeah, habit is a cable; we weave a thread each day, and at last we cannot break it.”

Tina: “But we are all imperfect. We have to see our lives as “work in progress and an attitude of continuous improvement.”

Horace: “Therefore, seek not greatness, but seek truth and you will find both.”

Unfortunately, Horace is not among us anymore but you can check out Tina’s new Habit and Mindset Program
