The Phrase That Pays

JD – Education is not the filling of a pail, it is the lighting of a fire. William Butler Yeats

KJ – Communication isn’t about speaking, it’s about listening. – Simon Sinek

JW – Don’t handicap your children by making their lives easy.

JM – No, you’re not hardcore! Unless you live hard core! And the legend of the rent was way hard core!

JS – Yay! School’s back in session.

EB* – My concentration level blocks out everything.

Being a father, I liked JW’s quote about handicapping your children.

And I think it applies to ourselves as well. Too often we take the easy path of life only to find out that in the end we have handicapped ourselves.

We have a tremendous opportunity to do great things. And this often requires taking the (seemingly) more difficult path. We must resist the urge to be easy on ourselves.

Opportunity is missed by most people because it comes dressed in overalls and looks like work. Henry Ford

Make it a great weekend.
