We're starting some different columns that we'll update every week, and Margaret will be in charge of this one. She came up with the brilliant idea to share a quote and small explanation, so I'll quit blathering and give you the first one!
Every ceiling, when reached, becomes a floor, upon which one walks as a matter of course and prescriptive right.
As we all are getting back in the swing of a new year and a new semester, many of us take the time to set new goals and resolutions. Many resolutions are met and the end game is simple satisfaction of reaching your sought after goals. However, as Huxley clearly implies, once your goals are met, you can own that accomplishment. You can move forward. You can attain more than you could have before. Goals are just as much about attaining goals as they are about seeing where they will take you next. With this in mind, I urge that each of you set out for your goals not only with the attainment in mind, but the future of what else you can accomplish.
