“I can’t control the outcome…”

I can’t control the outcome, but I can control my effort, and that makes all the difference in the world. – Eileen Cook

I just read this in a Turning Points blog by Eileen Cook over on Nova Ren Suma’s blog. Essentially, this is the conclusion I’ve been trying to come to about graduate work this week. In my last post I mentioned I’ve been very frustrated, and needed a change in attitude, and this is exactly the change I need to make.

(I wasn’t joking when I said the guest blogs in Suma’s Turning Points series can be very inspiring.)
