Side Note: I guest posted over here, but didn’t know what day it was going to be posted on and so I just saw it! I would greatly enjoy hearing your comments on it! I really like guest posting!

There are two kinds of people in the world: those who make excuses and those who get results. An excuse person will find any excuse for why a job was not done, and a results person will find any reason why it can be done. Be a creator, not a reactor.
– Alan Cohen, Leadership Author
Little people carry grudges. Great people forgive and forget. Little people hold on to insults. Great people let them go. Little people nurture thoughts of revenge. Great people move on.
Ask any leader why he or she is willing to forgive and forget, and you’ll hear, “I don’t have time to be bitter. I only have time to be better.”
There is nothing noble in being superior to someone else; progress is becoming superior to your previous self.
Perfection is what you’re striving for, but perfection is an impossibility. However, striving for perfection is not an impossibility. Do the best you can under the conditions that exist. That is what counts. – John Wooden
Always remember that when you refuse to make a decision, that in itself is a decision. The greatest power you have is the power to choose. You certainly don’t have to do anything in life, but you re accountable for whatever you don’t do.
“The fundamental cause of nearly all communication problems is that people don’t listen to understand; they listen to reply.”
