Today's quote was submitted by Brian

A Japanese proverb says "Fall seven times and stand up eight." I love that. How many times have YOU fallen down? If the answer is NEVER... maybe it's time you try to fall down. OK, don't actually try to fall down, that would probably hurt. But if you've hit every goal you've ever set, maybe the goals need to be a little bit higher? I worked with a guy who set tiny goals. He always hit the tiny goal and he thought it made him look like a rockstar. I was involved in a conversation with upper management when we were getting ready to promote someone. His name came up. One manager said he hits his goals, but his immediate manager said, he lacks confidence to set bigger goals. It actually hurt him to hit every LITTLE goal.
