Short Cuts:
On the SpotHave your personal or professional goals changed in light of September's tragedy?

"I definitely make a point of speaking to my loved ones more. My sense of stability has changed, even though I have worked in social work and never sweated the small stuff. You quickly realize your own problems are insignificant compared to those of some others."
Darlene Pollard
Executive Assistant/Meeting Planner

Washington, D.C.

"I'm not so sure my goals have changed, but I'm concerned that there will be fewer meetings. I am worried about traveling, too. If there is a positive side to this, it is that people have been less selfish since the attacks. It's just a shame it had to come about this way."
Tricia L. Wright, CMP

"My goals will not change, as I enjoy what I do. Perhaps, I wish I did not have to travel so much. If domestic airport security improves, that will be a great thing."
