Every day, I have to make the choice again. So far, I choose love.”

Being Prepared for Unrestricted Freedom

“Having been kept pretty strict in prep schools,

lasted until April and got bounced out again – for the same reason.”

Double Your Rate of Failure

“Would you like me to give you a formula for…success?  It’s quite simple, really.
Double your rate of failure…  You’re thinking of failure as the enemy of success.  But it isn’t at all…  You can be discouraged by failure or you can learn from it.  So, go ahead and make mistakes.  Make all you can.
Because, remember that’s where you’ll find success.  On the far side..”
~ Thomas John Watson, Sr.,
Businessman, Chairman & CEO of IBM

The Dream, The Vision Has Legs
