Monday Ponderance: Finish Strong

It is dreary outside. We are embarking on our second full week in a row with the prospect of 8 more in a row before we are off for Memorial Day. The 4th quarter begins today, and our 8th graders have been admitted to high schools and are ready to go

We've all been in situations where the immediate feeling may be to coast home. You've worked hard for 3/4 of the year and for an instant you feel that would be enough to get you through the rest of the year.

But that is not what will be remembered. The legacy of a team, of a person is how they end their season, their life. It's the last stretch where you earn your reputation, develop the character.

Check out this video (full disclosure: it promotes a book entitled Finsh Strong) to see how some people were able to overcome obstacles (obstacles most of us would have understood and accepted) and accomplish great things.
