Glory Days: Don't Let Them Pass You By…

Thank you Bruce Springsteen for this quote.  It seems today that the chorus of “glory days” conversation has increased. Perhaps it is because we live in a world of constant change and there is a longing for a slower pace?

My response to this is, the glory days were only golden in retrospect.  Every period of time has had its opportunities and challenges – it is only with hindsight that we see the value of a particular period in history.

Next time you find yourself longing for glory days, I encourage you to ask yourself the following questions:

  • What is it specifically that appeals to me about the past period?
  • What can I create today to give me the same feeling?
  • How can I be an effective leader today?
