That which each can do best, none but his Maker can teach him. Where is the master who could have taught Shakespeare?

Do that which is assigned you, and you cannot hope too much or dare too much. – Ralph Waldo Emerson
Identify one of your biggest challenges at the moment (ie I don’t feel passionate about my work) and turn it into a question (ie How can I do work I’m passionate about?)

Bonus: tweet or blog a photo of your post-it.
