Guts And Imagination

Starting a tidbit with a quotation or some other wise saying seems to help break the ice or since I am into clichés, it more likely is merely priming the creativity pump. Either way, a quote from Sylvia Plath struck me as useful for my present purpose, “And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise.

"Making initiatives successful is all about focus and passionate commitment. The drumbeat must be relentless. Every leadership action must demonstrate total commitment to the initiative."

Your First Six Pack

How about a six pack for a change of pace? Maybe you have a six pack of your own that is a little more quenching, so to speak. If so, pop a top and relax; and if a cold brew is not your style, a tall ice tea works just as well. You need only get comfortable, open your mind to the possibilities, and drink it in. This six pack's for you.
