The greatest achievement of the human spirit is to live up to
one’s opportunities, and to make the most of one’s resources.

Think of yourself on the threshold of unparalleled success. A whole
clear, glorious life lies before you. Achieve! Achieve!

What is the recipe for successful achievement?
To my mind there are just four essential ingredients:
Choose a career you love,
give it the best there is in you,
seize your opportunities, and
be a member of the team.

This week I spent time in Milwaukee with credit union trainers before hopping a flight to Las Vegas for another visit to USTA’s Community Tennis Development Workshop.

What quick steps could you take right now that will help you ACHIEVE something useful in school, work, or life?
On your mark,
