Motivational Quote – Your Body of Work

“That’s what building a body of work is all about – it’s about the daily labor, the many individual acts, the choices large and small that add up over time, over a lifetime, to a lasting legacy.  That’s what you want on your tombstone.  It’s about not being satisfied with the latest achievement, the latest gold star – because the one thing I know about a body of work is that it’s never finished.  It’s cumulative; it deepens and expands with each day that you give your best, each day that you give back and contribute to the life of your community and your nation.  You may have setbacks, and you may have failures, but you’re not done – you’re not even getting started, not by a long shot.”
