#113-1. It is an immutable law in business that words are words, explanations are explanations, promises are promises, but only performance is reality.
-Harold S. Geneen
#113-2. If you want things to stay as they are, things will have to change.

Remember... discovery, growth, and change must begin with you.
-Thomas D. Willhite
