Because we have so much to play for, I think it’s easy to get back to work and have a lot of motivation for the next week."
kirk cousins "The results-based business, the result wasn’t what we wanted but in the process we did some good things, We can build on that and start to create something long term that could be pretty special if we continue to find ways to plan and give good effort.
