This month’s leadership quote:
“We should try to be the parents of our future, rather than the offspring of our past.”
-Miguel de Unamuno
The best way I know to live Miguel’s quote is by being intentional. For some of us, it is setting goals and deciding what we want for the future. For others, it is opening ourselves to discovering the opportunities that await us and how we can best apply our geniuses and contribute to the world. Which way works best for each of us depends on who were are, and where we are, in our lives and our careers. Either way, it is up to us to be the parents of our future, rather than the offspring of our past.
P.S. One way to contribute to the world is to support social purpose organizations. With that in mind, the four of us have extended our Cara challenge grant through the end of the year. Click here, if you want to learn more and perhaps join the match.
