There are many thoughts out there and even whole self-help sections in bookstores about how to get ahead.  

A faculty member I recently interviewed has boiled her philosophy down to four keys to success:

1.  Data
2.  Planning
3.  Execution
4.  Optimism

It is her theory that without all four, you will falter somewhere and not achieve your ultimate goal.  Seems pretty simple, doesn’t it?

That is until you try to put it into action!  But try it anyway.  If she doesn’t have the magic key, she’s certainly close.
