Best Lesson Learned...
 A three year project early in my career taught me several several values, or ethos, that remain, have grown, and are applied to every work situation in which I find myself. Those values starting at number 2 speak for themselves: dedication to proper methodologies, the client, the user and the schedule; work ethic and urgency; and honesty and integrity.
 The primary value is to search for ways to make a positive impact. This can be to the user, the business, the purpose or the bottom line. Sometimes it can be great. The experience that proved this to me was working as the technology lead for a childrens' welfare system. In a mere five minute walk through a call center using the system and hearing just one side of a CSR's telephone conversation, the connection of technology and human lives in need was crystal clear and forever etched in my mind. That experience created the passion and dedication to service that has been driving me since.
