  • This is a little “ditty” is a reflection on my personal mission or life objective. The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People class by Stephen Covey  attendees graduate with a personal mission statement. Mine was several sentences long when I graduated.  I attended this class as a middle manager in IBM IT organization.  As a result of the class I chose to move to a new job in a new location.  The class was instrumental in changing my life’s direction.   As years went by my mission statement boil down to “Be Helpful.”  
  • This motto has provides me with a sense of satisfaction with my life, both past and future.   It is reward each day.  Each day builds to weeks, months, and years.    The result is a life of service to those closest to me providing them satisfaction.
