Long term success is not an event…
it is a process that will have peaks and valleys along the way.
-David Cotrell, submitted by Christopher T., Dearborn MI
To each there comes in their lifetime a special moment
when they are figuratively tapped on the shoulder
and offered the chance to do a very special thing,
unique to them and fitted to their talents.
What a tragedy if that moment finds them
unprepared or unqualified for that
which could have been their finest hour.
-Winston Churchill, submitted by Judy A., Carbondale IL
Many of us are enjoying the holiday weekend and PREPARING for the fall semester. Whether your life revolves around an academic calendar or not, I hope you can take a few moments this week to think about a “very special thing” you might be called to do in 2009 and what you could do in the next few months to PREPARE for it. Baby steps, my friend, just take a few baby steps this week and see what happens….
