Work and Shine
Vision without execution is hallucination.—Thomas Edison

Fitting words from the man who invented the lightbulb—the universal metaphor for an idea.

Do you have a great idea that's yet to see the light of day?  Then keep in mind that the Wizard of Menlo Park is just as well-known for the 10,000 attempts it took him to transform his idea into a reality!


A work ethic we can all take a shine to.


Editor's Note: Steve Jeck’s books, Of Stones and Strength and The Stone Lifter; and videos, Kviahellan DVD, Jeck on Stonelifting video, and Classic Jeck: The First Works CD, define the world of stonelifting.
