While growing up it was common to hear, “Son, when I was your age I used to…” The idea spoke of fond memories from the past. Do you remember the good ole’ days?
We may look to the past with regret over words or actions, or we may look with hope to greater opportunities for the future.
Leadership is not about the past, but the future. Leaders do not lead people where they have been, but where they need to go.
Do not allow the past to dictate direction. Acknowledge it. Learn from it. Leave it where it is, and focus on the future.
