A reminder from a dead poet ...

About two weeks ago my husband sent me this quote via email with the subject line "I think they're talking about CML & you here" ...

Success usually comes to those who are too busy to be looking for it. -- Henry David Thoreau

Since joining CML in January I've learned tons about this "new-to-me" library system - but most importantly I've learned that time, talent, triumphs, and this year's 100 + tactical plan stands still for no one, and nothing :). In fact there's so much good stuff going on all over this system (Homework Help Centers, pro-active reference, etc) and we're soooo busy pushing forward with new things (2020 Vision Plan, Tactical Plan, etc) that we often forget to stop and recognize all the success were having. :)

I know CML is not the only library out there that operates in this type of environment of exceptional excel ...

... but I guess sometimes it takes an outsider (like my hubby) and a dead poet to remind you that even though it can seem overwhelming at time, you're still on the right track. :)

This is a great quote and right on. Acting on our beliefs and values continuously keeps us in a constant state of success. The timid and glory-seeking often have to fabricate the mirage of success.
