April is the cruelest month?

In the next thirty days, I will read more than 550 scholarship applications and help 100 students afford a college education. April is my busiest month, and by awarding nearly $1.5 million in scholarship dollars, also the most significant. We find students who wish to fulfill their dream of a college education. Every minute counts as we finalize application files, review FAFSA information, and crunch through committee reviews, all before May 1.

Ancient Chinese philosopher, Lao Tzu has a good reminder for me this time of year.
Do the difficult things while they are easy and do the great things while they are small. A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.
