Aim High!

    John,

You're absolutely right. I've been in law enforcement for 30 years and just recently (within the past 2 years) started jotting down some of the more memorable events in my career. I've been struggling with some of the more interesting details. I was told when I started in the profession to keep a journal - Sadly, didn't take the advice to heart.

Speaking of Tom Clancy - Just got his latest book and plan to crack it open this weekend.

    That's something I have to be better at. My biggest problem is the little bites of stuff throughout the day. And if I didn't write it down, I didn't do it! tsk tsk on me! So, I have to remember that it all adds up. Thanks!
