Pursuing a dream is hard work, but the right words delivered at the right time-by people who've been there and done that-can give us just the motivation we need. The right words can rekindle our enthusiasm, re-energize our efforts, dispel doubt, let us know we're not alone, and show us that the fight is worth it-and winnable.

Kathryn and Ross Petras are masters at choosing and delivering just the right words. Their books-such as"Age Doesn't Matter Unless You're a Cheese"and"Dance First. Think Later."-and bestselling calendar,The 365 Stupidest Things Ever Said, have over 5.2 million copies in print. Now comes a book for dreamers and doers, plus writers, entrepreneurs, graduates, artists, future movers and shakers. Collecting the hard-won, brilliantly expressed advice from pioneers who have paved the way, including everyone from Rumi to Steve Jobs, Michelangelo to Oprah to Tina Fey,"It Always Seems Impossible Until It's Done"is like a rousing locker-room speech, inspiring courage, commitment, and perseverance.

-Michael Jordan
