The Benefits of Membership

It was early, I was late, and yet I stopped. At first I rushed by the window, but then I stopped and returned to the window. It was Friday and the Crew class was starting in 10 minutes. As I stood there, in front of the window, I re-read the words on the paper taped to the window. “The difference between who you are and who you want to be is what you do.” Simply stated but profound words.
