The “Colonel’s” VFV Motivational/Inspirational Quotes & Message of the Day!


Good “Thursday!” Morning “Band of Brothers & Sisters,” and all great connections. Welcome from the “Colonel’s Foxhole” on Day Nine of “Operation Costa Rica!” — 20 January 2022!


Today’s Message is: “Quality Time Day!” Why Not?


“Quality of time for a leader is about setting the right vision and goals, planning ahead, taking a break between tasks when needed, and managing the priorities based on their importance. Set a time limit to complete important tasks and spend some quality time alone to access your progress. You’ll be surprised what you learn about yourself during that quality time!" — COL (Ret) Mikel Burroughs

Good morning Col Burroughs and all of my brothers and sisters here on VFV. Quantity is great but quality is greater. It is truly important to spend quality time doing all that we do.
