Get Started-Donna Cardillo

When considering going back to school for my master’s degree, I learned that the college allowed 5 years to complete the degree. I said to myself, five years is going to pass whether I’m in school or not. So at the end of that five years I could either have a degree or still be thinking about it.

I went ahead and enrolled and plugged away for a full five years. Boy am I glad I did. Because now it is already several years behind me.

The secret to accomplishing anything is to get started and just keep putting one foot in front of the other.
