Do you ever have one of those days where you wonder, "How in the world did I get here?"We analyze some of our most recent or not so recent decision that became stones on our path. We replay events that were out of our control and have altered the path leading us to this day. As a result, we become trapped in our head, uncertain of who we are, where we are, and where we are going.
As parents, teachers, coaches, friends...anyone who leads at any level. There will come a day when we have gone as far as we can. We may not accomplish all we set out to accomplish. But thankfully we are not the last ones on earth. There is a generation of leaders that will come behind us. Our children will go on to realize dreams we only imagined. Our students and players will go on to be the citizens we had hoped they would be. When our time is done...we can take options 1,2, or 3 and coast into the sunset. Or we can make the preparations in our now for their then.
