Face Forward

One of the most important, yet difficult, things that we do as we live and lead is to do so facing forward.

Nothing is more frustrating than being stuck or worse yet feeling like things are getting worse, going backwards and in reverse.

You never reach a new level in your personal journey or in your leadership in reverse yet many people choose to live in the past.

The past can teach us many lessons and we would be wise to learn from them but we cannot stay there.

I used a theme for a basketball season nearly 30 years ago.
Proud of the Past.
Focused on the Present.
Looking to the Future.

We can be proud of where we have been and honor it but we must be focused on today, this moment, yet always looking forward to the vision we have for ourselves, our teams, and those that we lead.

Keep Facing Forward.

I’m cheering for you.
