A quick history of Anna Wintour, Editor in Chief of Vogue..

Anna is an amazing example of what focus, drive, and determination can achieve.. Being someone that has a “good” idea every other day.. it’s important to observe and learn from those that have achieved greatness through focus..  while Anna has revolutionized the fashion industry through, i’m sure, no shortage of ideas.. she did always have a target, for instance, Editor in Chief of Vogue…

The reason I say target and not goal is because I feel that target describes a very specific desire.. Anna’s desire was to be the Editor in Chief of Vogue, that is more then just a goal, she zoomed in on a bull’s eye.  And every shot she made in life was towards that bull’s eye.  Until she finally hit it.

Zoom in and shoot :-)

"But had I accepted the pickle juice, I would be drinking pickle juice right now."  —Nicki Minaj

For me “pickle juice” is just a metaphor for every time we are disappointed with a situation and don’t speak up.. thereby setting the bar very low..

Take a page from Nicki, no more “pickle juice”.
