Lessons learned

Lesson #1: Need to identify the problem before it can be

fixed

Lesson #2: Ask for help – use available resources

effectively

Lesson #3: Organization is essential for success (plus lots

of hard work)

Lesson #4: Hard work is not the same as smart work

Lesson #5: Recognize when you’ve done enough and be

willing to hand over to others
