From the Editor

I am writing this From the Editor on my chronologically 66th birthday although my felt age is 36!

I thoroughly love the Zachary Scott quote, “As you grow older, youll find that the only things you regret are the things you didnt do”.

I thought I would take this opportunity to share some words of wisdom through other quotes which I hope you find meaningful too:

  • Always new. Always exciting. Always full of promise. The mornings of our lives, each a personal daily miracle”. Gloria Gaither

  • Do your little bit of good where you are; its those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.” Desmond Tutu

  • Every day of our lives we are on the verge of making those slight changes that would make all the difference.” Mignon McLaughlin

  • Achievement is not about what youve done, but what youve gained from your experience”. Lynn Hill

  • Sometimes, the best way to make a big difference is adding up lots of small ones.” Queen Rania Al Abdullah of Jordan

  • “…will and energy sometime prove greater than either genius or talent or temperament”. Isadora Duncan

  • Never let yesterday use up today”. RichardNelson

  • Speak the truth, even if your voice shakes”. Unknown

  • The beautiful thing about learning is that no one can take it away from you”. B.B. King

This last quote, which is from B.B. King, reinforces the importance of being a lifelong learner. You can add to your knowledge by reading the 18 articles contained in this issue of WORK. I am sure there are topics of interest to you from predictors of employment status among adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder, to burnout and gender-based inequalities among ophthalmologists, to workers’ heat acclimatization and job satisfaction. Perhaps read an article on a topic unfamiliar to you!
