Hallerin Hilton Hill
That's a big questions I've faced my entire career. So having a pithy, aspirational answer used to be important to me.
It was a way of assuring myself and reassuring those who were analyzing me that there was forward momentum/progress. Hallerin's not a looser.
But you know what, lately I've been thinking of a better question.
Here's a better question:
Truth is, every time I've focused on making the most of the moment in front of me I created a better "next". Make sense?? Now is next.
I was reminded of this on a visit to a local business. One of the managers took me on a tour of his exceptionally well-run enterprise.
On the wall in his office hung this quote:
"Every job is a self-portrait of the person who did it. Autograph your work with excellence."
Focus on being great where you are. What's next is what's now. As you start the week and a new school year re-commit to being great now. What's now IS what's next. Better now. Better next.
Grow. Help others grow. Be encouraged.
