Short Words: Quid Pro Quo

Life is a series of transactions. Every decision is an investment in progress that may necessitate a withdrawal from comfort. No transition is easy. You constantly weigh the risk of maintenance against the gains of pursuit. The plateau is for the even-keel, the climb is for the aggressive; those who can be content yet still mindful of the perils of stagnation.

There is an inherent potential of failure with any endeavor. Those who are able to shake off ‘reasonable’ trepidation reap the satisfaction of the effort, and the rewards of success. The late Robert Kennedy summed it best:

Progress is a nice word. But change is its motivator. And change has its enemies.” Knowing the difference can only add to your bottom line. Are you willing to leverage the sure ‘bare necessities’ against the possible plenitude? Real figures carry real discomfort.”


But I don’t think you’ll let that deter you.

Here’s to your success!
