What’s your favorite quote?
“In every battle there comes a time when both sides consider themselves beaten, then he who continues the attack wins.” Ulysses S. Grant
What’s the most productive day of the week?
Friday (or any day before I am taking time off). I have a heavy bias toward action and resolution and take satisfaction with getting a project completed or a question answered without having it waiting for me days later.
What was your very first job?
When I was 16, I worked part time at a fish market, cutting and handling seafood and cleaning containers. I would come home smelling like fish. I was very popular with the ladies during those years.
