Tonight is hard because tomorrow I will be attending a funeral for a former student. He died by suicide. 5 years ago I read him Magic Treehouse books. I remember how excited he was to meet his behavior goal for the first time. I was hoping to see him in 2 years at the HS.

Go back on birth control (not pregnant yet)? Generally happy and well liked where I am, but path to partnership is basically non-existent. Lateral move would be in hopes of better partnership prospects.

Serious question: how do you "become" a top performer in a company? I get why some are viewed as rock stars or go-getters, but not how they do it or drum up the top-level support for it. Whenever I press to kickstart initiatives or push in a certain direction, the leadership is never interested in the actions or ideas.
