Me at my alma mater, what a joke, they would probably refuse to acknowledge me. To quote Robert frost
I shall be telling this with a sigh
somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I
I took the one less travelled by,
and that has made all the difference.
Still I would tell, you never know what’s round the corner. It could be everything, or it could be nothing. you just keep putting one foot in front of the other and then one day when you look back you’ve climbed a mountain, you have created that country and put your artefact there.
The sad part is no one has free will until they are adults and by the choices that are made for them have already put them on a course that gives limited freedom in choice. Throw away those books on inspirational leadership. Send those consultants packing. Know your job and set a good example for the people under you and put results over politics that’s all the charisma you’ll require to succeed.
In front of you would a path that says this is the path to follow, the other say this is the only path follow the only path that is your passion.
Beneath the towering pines, by the blue river, Farragut will stand alma mater true.
