Duane R. Greenly ’72, president and CEO of Ames True Temper, the largest supplier of landscaping products in the U.S., is fond of saying that “preparation and perspiration beats inspiration.” Greenly returned to Bloomsburg University recently to share what he’s learned from 30 years in business. As part of his presentation—similar to the advice he gives during in-house training sessions at Ames — he offered his 12 Commandments of Business.

I’m trying to train my kids to use their heart maps when they need writing inspiration, so I keep my heart map by my easel and refer to it during every minilesson prior to writing. I like to pretend…VERY dramatically…that I have NOTHING to write about. The kids are quick to remind me that I can use my heart map for inspiration! They’re all, “DUH, Mrs. Carroll!!!” HA!

It might take a year...
Sayings, Meant To Be, Life, What S Meant, Truth, Thought, Inspirational Quotes, Year
I've learned a lot about love over the year or two, some people may say i know nothing but i say i know more than those fools. Love is painful yet calming at the same time, it can be reversed only moved forward. I tried my best to forget and even then the thought of her came back, and now i hear the exact opposite of what she used to think about me, i guess.... It was just not meant to be
It might take a Year, it might take a Day, but what's meant to be will always find its Way. I don't know where my life is leading, and I have my dreams, but everything will fall into place. #motivational #inspirational #quotes
