                                    Mr. Marks 
    Why did I choose my career? 
    The best way for me to answer that question is by using a quote from the book of Ecclesiastes.
    "If a man cannot find happiness in his work he will live a miserable existence on this earth. It does not matter the occupation, it only matters that the man finds significance in the work. If a man works with the objective of increasing his salary, yet does not find significance in his work, no salary could ever be enough. If a man works for promotion instead of significance there is no position lofty enough to satisfy. Man must work so that through his life he has bettered the lives of others."

    10 Steps to Success

    These are 10 items taken from Coach Wooden.

    Failing to prepare is preparing to fail.

    Do not mistake activity for achievement.

    There is nothing stronger than gentleness.

    Be most interested in finding the best way, not in having your way.

    It's what you learn after you know it all that counts.

    Happiness begins where selfishness ends.

    The man who is afraid to risk failure seldom has to face success.

    You discipline to correct, to help, to improve--not to punish.

    Be more concerned with your character than your reputation.

    Make each day your masterpiece.
