Your Daily Obstruction: Mistakes

1 Dec

I didn’t post a Daily Obstruction yesterday.  After four days away from the office, I got so busy that I forgot.  I apologize.  My mistake.  Here is a second Daily Obstruction for today to atone.






“We all make mistakes” is a platitude.  But what those mistakes make is a life – just as much as the pattern of your successes.  Error and accomplishment are the light and darkness of your self-portrait.
