Having Standards

Standards. Why do we have them in the first place? How much exactly is one inch? How about one cup? We know the answers because we’ve used instruments of measurement before. Perhaps it was a tape measure or a little plastic cup with markings and numbers on it. […]

Greatness

True greatness does not ask for the title, it just becomes so, often in the midst of conflict and pain. It takes a lot to stay on the path of success. With countless opportunities to run from adversity, far too few of us stick it out until the […]
