Sklover’s Thought for the Work Week

Featured Coffee Cup

“One who runs alone cannot be outrun by another.”

– Ethiopian Proverb

Lelisa Desisa, an Ethiopian, won the 2015 Boston Marathon. Yenane Dhane Tsegay, another Ethiopian runner, came in second in the Marathon. The Ethiopian view is that, when you compete with yourself, and not others, you are most likely to “win the race.” The results seem to speak for themselves. So consider applying this thought each day to the “marathon” that is your work and career.
