Gary Gilmore and “Just Do It”

It Is Not Always That Easy

…Gary Gilmore grew up in Portland, and ran around doing criminal acts in the country, and was in Utah where he murdered a man and a woman, and was sent to jail and put before a firing squad. Wieden continued: "They asked him if he had any final thoughts and he said: 'Let's do it'. I didn't like 'Let’s do it' so I just changed it to 'Just do it'…" Nike CEO, 1976


Sometimes, it is not as simple as that

And sometimes, we stay on the fence much too long, deciding

Resolve is needed!

If you feel it in your heart, do it

If you make a mistake, it’s OK

Sometimes, a mistake is a perfect learning experience

Resolve is needed

That inner strength that is needed to persevere through the difficulties

Grits and gravy

To resist giving up and throwing in the towel

Grit and grime

Life, itself, can be that intervening force that halts and hinders

Bite the bullet

Do or die

“Throw caution to the wind and let the chips fall wherever they may fall”

And achieve those goals and dreams!!
