My blogging hero wrote a post on effort yesterday that I absolutely love. 212ers... it's particularly worth your time but no one should miss it (including your high school and college students).
How well the 212 video would have fit (in my self-centered-I-wish-everyone-knew-about-212-not-so-humble-opinion).
About an hour before I read it, I saw this license plate on a very nice Mercedes (I'm obviously becoming a license plate stalker).
When I saw it [so lucki], my first thought was "Probably not. I'm guessing you worked for it."
Then my cynic came out... "Maybe not. Maybe you were given the car. Maybe you inherited money and bought it."
And I realized it didn't make a difference.
One... because who cares what I think? And two, because...
Someone worked somewhere along the way. And to be able to work (to contribute) is to be lucky.
