A life of courage, joy and independence.
Today’s action plan is to perform my work and duty well; to go as prepared as I possibly can; to present my ideas honestly and sincerely, neither adding flourish nor masking known deficit; and to be ready to listen to objection, argument, and reason against these, while standing ready to humbly accept any praise. I endeavor to use whatever information, guidance and correction – however it may come – to the more worthy end of improving my work for the benefit of the public whom I serve, and the objectives of the common good. I will suffer and withstand any adversity without fluster, recognizing these forces as no more than the wind and rain upon the land, pelting and eroding, removing material, destroying what is now, in favor of what is to become. This is how I shall strive to pass the current day.
