Making your mark on the world is hard. If it were easy, everybody would do it. But it's not. It takes patience, it takes commitment, and it comes with plenty of failure along the way. The real test is not whether you avoid this failure, because you won't. it's whether you let it harden or shame you into inaction, or whether you learn from it; whether you choose to persevere. - Barack Obama

When we feel something solid up ahead, stop trying to push through. We cannot win at poker until we correctly perceive these signals. - Larry W. Phillips

Here's a law of science that could change your life. At 211 degrees, water is hot. At 212 degrees, it boils. And with boiling water comes steam. And steam can power a locomotive. The one extra degree makes all the difference. And so, many times in business and in life, it's that one extra degree of effort that separates the good from the great. - Mac Anderson
