Happy birthday, America!

Sometimes you have to keep doing the same thing over and over until the world catches up with you, notices what you're doing, and is ready to make the most of it. On occasion, you just have to continue on until the right person with insight and resources crosses your path. If you changed too quickly, in the face of apparent defeat, you'd miss that meeting with destiny that could have been yours had you just been tough enough to keep doing your thing, over and over, expecting a different result. Tom Morris

There’s a good column in the Denver Post this morning about a great way to help America and to help yourself at the same time. The first comment post to the article complained about jobs going to others in the world, in response to which I posted this:

We are now competing with the world, and there is no road back to fortress America.

Get a job. Yes. Then use that job to build a successful career that includes being a good citizen.

How? A good starting place would be this advice from philosopher Tom Morris "Mastering the Art of Change."
