stuff ‘round the mill
“Between you and every goal that you wish to achieve, there is a series of obstacles, and the bigger the goal, the bigger the obstacles. Your decision to be, have and do something out of the ordinary entails facing difficulties and challenges that are out of the ordinary as well. Sometimes your greatest asset is simply your ability to stay with it longer than anyone else.”
~ Brian Tracy

Recently some of the mill rats asked me “how do I (or anyone else) cycle up Bangor Mountain?” There is only one correct answer! You must peddle, and peddle, and when you get tired…KEEP PEDDLING!

Stay at it, there will be plenty of time to rest when we are “laid to rest”.
