What Margie Believes
Call it a Code...
Events of the past, those we interact with and interact with us, the things we do and the things we do not do make us who we are. Whether you admit it or not we all live by a code. The level of integrity within your code is up to you. If your code is such that we never fail then your code needs work. The level you strive for must always be just outside your reach.
