My success such as it is, which is to say not only having a permanent Sr. Engineer Oracle position in NYC for the fantastic and visionary company Logicworks and being able to ride my full-suspension mountain bike 20 miles to work each day (90% on a dedicated bike path into NYC) was made possible by a commitment to the idea that Mission Success is Job 1 and more importantly that Mission Success can sometimes come at the last possible hour of the last possible minute of the last possible 27 seconds, which I never gave up on believing and making into reality at every opportunity and which naturally results in all-nighters and other such madness. This idea was fostered by my parents, and by numerous teachers and thought and action leaders throughout my life.
