There are three senses students (and, come to think of it, all of us) need to succeed -- in college, in business and in life!

1. A sense of history. If you don't know and understand where you came from, you'll never have a clue as to where you may be going.

2. A sense of perspective. About the world around you and, of no less import, about yourself.

3. A sense of humor. Take what you do most seriously. Yourself? Not so much. Laugh. It truly is the best medicine!

Plan. Prepare. Prevail!
