Despite our high rate of unemployment, 300,000 jobs go unfilled largely because many of the unemployed lack the skills needed today as a result of technological progress.
I am vegetarian. I have a sweet tooth, so I try and avoid desserts. I binge maybe once a month. I eat every two hours, whether it is a Marie biscuit or just a slice of apple. As a result, my metabolism has improved, and this is a huge contributor to weight loss.
The most successful men in the end are those whose success is the result of steady accretion.
Alexander Graham Bell

Ellen G. White

Success isn't about the end result, it's about what you learn along the way.
