READ THIS FIRST. It is not about me, and yet it is me. Perhaps if I continue to develop, those folks he cites will be peers, not aspirants.
I feel passionately about each of these issues, and really do work hard to practice each. As I grade myself objectively, I think I bat a solid 90 percent. I don’t do each one perfectly, of course, but with partial credit, I definitely at least THINK I am coming close to full effort on each, and have mastered several.
Its almost bizarre to see them captured so neatly here. My favorite of all is number 4: They work on themselves. I often fear failure after working hard to get where I am. My lingering fear is that it will somehow come crashing down around me. But because I adhere to quality four, I am encouraged by Dr. Humbert’s citation.
Now if only he would let me do some editing for him!
