In the most unlikely of places ...

One important way to further one's personal growth is to continuously strive to remain challenged in life's endeavors and, perhaps most importantly, resist the urge to settle into complacency.  An individual that implements this mentality has a greater likelihood to identify possibility and opportunity - even in the most unlikely of places.

My morning meeting consisted of a video that is an embodiment of just that - the ability to see beauty and opportunity in something that is not necessarily apparent at first glance.  While reading the newspaper one morning, this individual saw a picture of birds on the electric wire.  Cutting out the photo - this individual decided to make a song, using the exact location of the birds as notes.  A perfect example of what results if we just open our eyes (and ears) a bit wider... Enjoy!
