It is also safer! But no one ever said “safety” and “leadership” are synonymous.
True leaders don’t worry about history. They use hindsight to their advantage, they learn from their past mistakes, but they don’t spend their time looking through the rear view mirror.
Great Leaders are busy concentrating on today, while working on the future, they do not spend too much time looking back because they don’t want to miss an opportunity of the future.
Spend your time today planning, exploring, discovering, concentrating on your vision so you can see a vision for your future. Use your talents and gifts to help you get to your destination.
Lead From Within: Don’t focus on the rear view mirror. Instead, focus on what to do next. Spend your energies on moving forward.
