Learning to Work Hard

December 11, 2011
There is no debate that we live in an increasingly complex society.  Our economic health is now a global issue, not a local or regional one.  The definition of academic success is shifting to meet new national standards.  However, one thing remains a constant.  There are no short cuts to success.  The only way we can achieve true success is by good old-fashion hard work.  It is important that we convince our students that hard work is something that is good for them.  That all the time, energy, and effort is not sacrifice – instead it is an investment in their potential.  We need our students to feel like each time they go the extra mile that they are gaining an advantage on their competition.

“We often miss opportunity because it’s dressed in overalls and looks like work”
? Thomas Edison
