Success lives in Method — by Detail and Knowledge,
Near Foresight and Know-How. Some find him through College.
With him live Passion, The-Peak-of-Your-Game,
Thoughtful-Endeavor, and Purposeful-Aim.
Together they play — their games long-and-late
Preparing in ways that their names indicate.
They fashion their plans — revising them new,
Testing to litmus what is best to do,
…Always assessing conditions abroad,
Insisting decisions be sound and be bold.
They play as a team, know each at the table,
Make clear expectations, play each-as-is-able.
The aim of the game is to turn what they know
Into meaningful action; to make fortune flow.
Together they play — long into the night.
Earning the names they use in the light.
