“If you are going to be first in your corporation, start practicing by being first on the job.” -Jeffrey J. Fox

“You work a job to make money.  You work a career to build something you value.  A job is something you do to make money.  A career is a life’s vocation.  With a job, you are always thinking about the time you won’t be working.  With a career, you are always thinking about the career even when you aren’t working….  The litmus test for determining whether you have a job or a career is this question (suggested to me by Gary North many years ago): If you could afford to, would you do it for free?” -Mark Ford
