Most mission statements are terrible. They are vapid, unmemorable, uninspiring--platitudes that generate cynicism among employees. Example: “We are committed to achieving new standards of excellence by providing superior human capital management services and maximizing the potential of all stakeholders – clients, candidates, and employees – through the delivery of the most reliable, responsive, flexible, and cost-effective services possible.” Ugh. By Bob and Gregg Vanourek

We want our children to understand the purposes of our plan and preserve the wealth and legacy that we leave them.

By following these steps, we can help our children begin to better understand and preserve the wealth and the legacy we leave them. By Jim Sprout
How much “time interference” is acceptable? I can answer that question with a single word. The acceptable level of “transactional time leakage” is always “LESS” – less than what we’re spending today and even less in the future. Virtually every business in the world is being asked with doing more with less, so why shouldn’t we be applying that same of metrics to our time costs? By Tom Frey

What I have noticed from absorbing all this news is that Colorado is getting mentioned more and more all the time.
