We are living a story, but too often we live as if the story is written for us. It's as if the experiences and events just unfold with no real design or purpose. How sad, because the great thing about "today" is the power to shape "tomorrow."
In my Leadership video, I say that leadership is the relentless pursuit of tomorrow. You can't lead if you're not looking ahead to what you want tomorrow to look like. That doesn't mean other events or circumstances can't change your plans, but looking ahead and planning ahead is the first major step in making your story a reality.
