Goals + determination equal success — Business Management Daily: Free Reports on Human Resources, Employment Law, Office Management, Office Communication, Office Technology and Small Business Tax Business Management Daily
What sets you apart as somebody who means business is having goals plus the will to meet them. A perfect example: Army Capt. David Rozelle, who lost a foot in Iraq but is bent on returning himself to fighting trim … and to war.
Rozelle set two initial goals for his rehabilitation: Leave the hospital in time for the birth of his child last August, and ski again by Christmas. He spent hours a day in therapy, and that got him home two months ahead of schedule. Then, he put on his first prosthesis, started training four hours a day and skied the Rockies right on time.
Rozelle misses his foot, but its loss hasn’t slowed him down a whole lot. In fact, he’s back on active duty, has assumed command of the 3rd Armored Cavalry’s headquarters unit and expects to return to Iraq as early as next year.
