“In order for leadership to grow, we must look in the mirror and face our failures”
Michael A. Wood Jr.

“I live completely without regret. Sure there are plenty of things that someone could second guess, but I see the path of life like driving down the road without a map. The thing is, some dark alleys open up in majestic places, and some bright and shiny highways to the top end in cliffs to the bottom. You never know until you get there. What I know for sure is that if many years ago I actually had a map to the path of life, the destination that I would have chosen is right here, with this family, in this place, and with these smiles. That makes anything that could have been regretful, the best decision in the world.”
Michael A. Wood Jr.

“People usually wear their smarty pants when they are trying to hide their dumb asses.”
Michael A. Wood Jr.

“As a leader, I am there to make the best decisions possible with the evidence at hand and to be able to justify that decision. If it goes wrong, we add to the evidence for making the next decision, but there is no reason for regretting failure, as failure is just the production of evidence.”
Michael A. Wood Jr.

“Leadership is the influence of a person(s) on another person(s) which guides their efforts in a specific direction, with more purpose, clarity, and unity than they would have held on their own.”

“In order for leadership to grow, we must look in the mirror and face our failures”

Kristine the U of M calls my degree a Bachelor of Arts in Law Criminology & Deviance which I'll use to work in the prison system as a parole officer. I worry sometimes that I'll end up like Harley Quinn of Batman fame, but I'd like to think that I have a wee bit more fortitude than that. :)
