One day, my father looked at me and said "Never settle". I have taken his direction from that day to heart. I won't settle for less than the best...from myself, from the work I produce, and from the choices I make.
Continuing to learn is a huge part of not settling. I have taken numerous classes since college and continue to look for more classes to take. Never settle with the knowledge you have, always strive for more.
Part of what makes me who I am is my drive - Never giving up. Even when things seem too difficult, it is important to push oneself to learn how it works.
