Things I generally lie about are: my weight on my driver's license and how long it will take for me to get somewhere when I am already late. For some reason, even when I know I need another thirty minutes, I say it will only take fifteen.

Scott Mercier

Does it matter how you win? The answer, to me, is a resounding, "yes." Grace, humility, integrity and gasp, even honesty, are important elements in winning. I would even say they are integral components of winning, and that "winning" without them actually losing.

Old habits don't die easily, but they do eventually dissolve, although the process usually takes longer and requires more practice than we think it should.
