What does Independence mean to you?
  Tiffany's Tip of the Month Tiff's photo
As we celebrate Independence Day, I reflect that "independence" means having the freedom to make choices: Choices about the job you work, your relationships, how you carry yourself, your attitude, how you nurture your body, mind, and soul. Think about your past, present, and future choices. Are you choosing servitude or freedom with your decisions?
As a teenager, I observed how my mother and father's career choices were limited by their high school education. Determined to have more options, I worked two full-time jobs for the first year after high school graduation to earn enough money to pay for my first semester at a local, traditional college. While attending classes all day, I continued to work full-time to pay for my bachelor's degree. This choice to get a higher education doesn't guarantee success, but it did teach me critical thinking skills, demonstrated the perseverance and commitment to get a four-year degree, and opened doors that might otherwise be closed.

To open doors, open your mind! And you'll see limitless possibilities, gain freedom of control, and experience ultimate independence.
For over 200 years, our nation has done the heavy lifting to maintain its independence, so American citizens have freedom of choice. It's our responsibility to celebrate our independence every day!

Forest Service Weathers Changes
Since 1891, the US Forest Service has seen many changes in philosophy and administration. In the last few years, the Forest Service has seen unprecedented pace of change due to cuts in their budget. On April 10, the Arapahoe and Roosevelt National Forests and Pawnee National Grassland convened to discuss strategies for effectively weathering these rapid and extreme changes.

Achievement Consulting & Training customized and facilitated the day's program specifically for their unique circumstances. When we asked what they liked best about the workshop, one participant said, "How it was catered specifically to our units/personal changes. It was fast paced, interactive, well-organized, and contained helpful content/handouts."

We thank the Forest Service for their commitment to preserving the forests and grasslands for our enjoyment!
