Perceptions

things aren't always as they seem

The Best Line, Unlimited

Leave a comment

In chapter seven of Unlimited, Jillian Michaels is making the case to “Quit Your Worrying” and “Root yourself filrmly in the present moment.” A few paragraphs later, she says “If and when a bad thing happens, you will manage the situation as productively as possible, but until then, stay present and deal with the task, and moment, at hand.”

For me, the best line in the book is a statement by Ellen Rakieten, the producing partner of Ms. Michaels’ company. Her advice on how not to worry about things that haven’t happened: “Don’t bleed until you’re shot.”
