I’ve come back to this quote many times when things aren’t going as fast or the way I’d like them to: “Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan Press On! has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.” -Calvin Coolidge.
Ecotone just received its first credit releases for our wetland mitigation bank which took over 7 seven years to bring to fruition. The perseverance award of the year has to go to Marie Brady, who shepherded this project through the morass of regulatory hurdles, of which there were many. Well done Marie!
