Dr. Hodson’s Philosophy of Education: "I have been impressed with the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Being willing is not enough; we must do (Leonardo da Vinci)." Don't be satisfied with the skills and abilities you currently have; develop more. Also, maintain those skills and abilities you have by using them on a regular basis, now and in the future, to build the people up that are around you.
