I took some time off this past week for some fun and relaxation in the snow of Utah. Wow – what a great way to escape!
Anyway, when I was out and about I heard people complaining about the economy: “no one’s hiring, gas is too high, when am I going to get a bailout?” – that kind of stuff – usually in a drab Squidward-like tone (you SpongeBob fans know what I mean!). Sure, things aren’t great – and we’re all being affected – especially with our runaway government implementing all of this “change we can believe in”.
But there is a silver lining. Want to know what it is? It’s the fact that we all have a choice to either wallow in the woes of the world OR to get out there and better ourselves and start making our own changes that we can actually rely on rather than “believe in”. There’s a saying that if you work long enough and hard enough you must eventually hit a homerun. If you want to get ahead then you’ve got to get going. This requires: 1) aspiration, 2) determination, 3) motivation, and, most importantly, 4) perspiration (a.k.a. working your butt off). Study these words and use this as your formula for success in 2009.
Start today. You won’t regret it. Things will only get better.
“A business associate referred our company to Principle Logic when we were seeking a resource to perform vulnerability /penetration testing for our external and internal networks. We found Kevin Beaver to be professional, well informed, and easy to work with. His testing did not disrupt our networks, and his progress updates were timely.
His final report was very thorough and included security recommendations for our network environment. The executive leadership was so impressed with Kevin’s security expertise, they have extended their agreement to continue to perform periodic testing. We highly recommend Kevin Beaver and Principle Logic as a resource for network security testing.”
