I was fortunate to have been adopted/mentored by Mrs. Rosa Parks. The biggest lesson she taught me was to “seize the moment”. Utilize every breathing moment you have, in carrying out your message and mission in life. Although Mrs. Parks and Jody Powell's lessons are seemingly different, they are both remarkably simple.
Achieving your goals, whether personal -- or with your brand -- is easy if you keep these simple words, in your mind’s eye, always: Getting pissed off is not a plan. Seize the moment.
