I just heard this quote and thought I would share:
“Opportunity is often missed because it comes dressed in overalls and looks like hard work” – Albert Einstein.
This quote comes at the absolute perfect time in my life. On Monday, I was told that my Air Force instructors chose ME to be the Director of Training for next semester. This is a VERY prestigious position (3rd highest), where I will be responsible for all of the training for 160 people, freshmen through seniors. It is very rare that juniors are given this opportunity, but they chose me explicitly. On Wednesday, they told me that they want me to do a complete overhaul of the program. They want me to change everything, to rebuild it from the ground up. This truly is an incredible opportunity to make an impact, and to really mold this organization. It’s going to be tough (I’m currently developing 15 2-hour long lesson plans) but I know that as long as I keep the right state of mind, I will do great things.
