This pic makes me smile. It’s my niece Amelia and Sis In Law, Janine. 2 people I would love to be able to spend more time with in my life.  It’s hard when you live clear across the country. It’s definitely easier now with Skype but sad that I don’t get to be a regular part of their lives. Life is so short and family so important — Hannah’s 5 year plan to move out West is sounding more and more like the right thing to do.

But like everything else, it won’t happen sitting on my butt and wishing. It will take work, commitment and focus to make it happen. And it’s not just something I can do solo — it will take team to make it happen and that’s where the issue is. I am not sure everyone is on board with the plan.

The successful person makes a habit of doing what the failing person doesn’t like to do.

Genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration. Accordingly a genius is often merely a talented person who has done all of his or her homework.

 In the realm of ideas everything depends on enthusiasm… in the real world all rests on perseverance.

Long shots do come in and hard work, dedication and perseverance will overcome almost any prejudice and open almost any door. John H. Johnson
