Where you stand, depends on where you sit.


Nelson Mandela: “Where you stand, depends on where you sit.”

I feel very blessed in my life. Yet, I also realize that we do not all come from the same background, or have had the same opportunities, or find ourselves in situations where we are more likely to succeed than someone who is not us.

The world isn’t fair. Some folks work hard to keep it that way. We don’t have to accept that … but changing the status quo can be a bitch of a task.

Stay curious. Challenge authority. Do not accept people’s stands as the final word on what is right or wrong.

    I think this is what Pete Candland is facing. He is trying to change the status quo of the BOCS and is being steam rolled at every opportunity.

  2. Thanks, Bill. I needed to hear that, especially after this past week! Have a great weekend.
