Don’t forget about now

IChristmas-decoration‘ve been remiss in posting since Thanksgiving … but I enjoyed the break! As we are a couple of days away from what for Christians is a wonderful day and season of hope and joy, I wanted to share a short excerpt from Marshall Goldsmith’s book, What Got You Here Won’t Get You There:

“ … Don’t look ahead. Look behind. Look back from your old age at the life you hope to live. Know that you need to be happy now, to enjoy your friends and family, to follow your dreams.

You are here. You can get there! Let the journey begin.”


I have found that professionals tend to focus so much on what’s next that we lose sight of what we have now and where we are. I heard a great quote the other day (since I can’t find it on the web I’m sure I’m misquoting it): “If you’re always focused on the future, you’ll never get there.”

Here’s to the now. Merry Christmas from my family to yours and happy holidays to all of you.
