For my first returning quote of the week, I'm picking Ralph Waldo Emerson. This particular quote is ringing true more and more as of late. I live in Houston, and with the oil prices dropping dramatically (and staying down), along with many contributing factors, a lot of people are out of work. Add to that the fact that work in general is moving more and more to a Business of One (check out www.careerealism.com), I've realized that not only shouldn't we blindly follow the path, but that the path may actually be a trap. You have to find your own way, because no one else will. If you can do that, then you leave a trail that others can chose to follow.
In the coming weeks / months, I will work on cutting my own trail. Please let me know if this quote resonates with you, as I will continue to post a new one weekly.
