Create Benchmarks with a clear out line of the benefits created by reaching those benchmarks.  ACA will fail unless it reaches certain numbers so why not state that and put the power back in the hands of the people. Any progress that can be seen is encouraging and will provide a moral boost and a sense of urgency coupled with a contribution to something greater than oneself.

I live life to its' fullest. If you know me you know I wish there was more time in a day so I could get more done. I have a great family who is very supportive and caring. Fitness and health is a cornerstone in my life. It allows me to play hard and keep up with the demands others and myself make. My philosophy is very simple, live and let live. I believe because I like listening more than talking people can appreciate having a real conversation with me. I may not be super out going around big groups of people but get me in a small group and I open up and have a blast.
