Some motivation for you to feed off of

I figure as everyone goes into the weekend, it might be good to get a jolt of motivation to feed off of.

This video has helped me so many times in the past ten years. Too many times to count, I nearly quit with my company, and with my dream to become a great author, and when those doubts would assail me — or fear would cause me to freeze — I’d watch this video. (No joke. I know this makes me a big dork, but you can ask prior employees or my wife.)

So, as you go into your weekend, maybe it’ll help you reach your full potential to help you be the best that you can be, as well. And with that said, here’s the video. Have a great weekend, everyone!

Keep the faith,

Anyway, two quick things on this stormy Thursday night here in Oak Ridge.
