As the end of 2010 rolls around taking the time to reflect on the year, your beliefs and values, can perhaps, help the move forward in 2011. It is important that the behaviors we manifest represent the beliefs and values that we have. C4K values zeal. Zeal is one of those words that accurately describes the commitment of a small group of people to launch Consult 4 Kids Educational Services for After-School. The journey began with the commitment to after-school, blossomed to the understanding and belief in the importance of developing staff, and resulted in the development of the C4K website. This journey has been sustained by the tireless devotion of a small group of people who had the ardor, eagerness, and zeal to share knowledge and expertise with other after-school professionals.
Kahlil Gibran commented, "Zeal is a volcano, the peak of which the grass of indecisiveness does not grow.” This has been true for C4K. Once made, the initial decision to develop C4K has guided the process. The team has learned much, experienced challenges of both technology and content overload, and persevered to launching the website services. If initial response is any indication, the journey was well worth the effort.
At C4K we firmly believe that a “small group of committed people can change the world.” We have found some of these quotes, inspirational.
"Through zeal, knowledge is gotten; through lack of zeal, knowledge is lost; let a man who knows the double path of gain and loss thus place himself that knowledge may grow." The Buddha
"When you are laboring for others let it be with the same zeal as if it were for yourself." Confucius
"Experience shows that success is due less to ability than to zeal." Charles Buxton
"Zeal will do more than knowledge.” William Hazlitt
