How often have I heard the expression, "go for the low hanging fruit." The point of this post is to say (and I agree with it), "Don't go for the low hanging fruit." Why? Because that's what everyone is doing. "You begin in the manner you intend to continue in. The statement is perhaps a bit convoluted in syntax, but to me it is a reminder to the bar of expectations is set by your actions early, so it’s important to set a good standard early." I know, it's meant as advoice for new librarians. But who among us isn't tempted by the easy score, when we should be working for lasting results?
