We know that many of you are concerned about resuming your career after COVID-19. As a result, beginning next week we will offer several new posts to assist you going forward. Two per week, on Mondays and Tuesdays. On Wednesdays and Thursday, we will have regular posts.
For those of you who have been furloughed, taken a pay cut, reassigned to other tasks, and so forth, we offer our sincere best wishes that you are able to get your career back on track in short order.
Consider these quotes from insightful individuals, compiled by Racine County Eye:
“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: It is the courage to continue that counts.” — Winston Churchill
“When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us.” — Alexander Graham Bell
“Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly.” — Robert F. Kennedy
“Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan has solved and will always solve the problems of the human race.” — Calvin Coolidge
