“Don’t let yesterday use up too much of today.” Cherokee Proverb

Do you tend to look forward, or focus on your present, or tend to dwell on the past?

Over the next few days, notice your own pattern, and ask others for their opinion on where you tend to focus.

Which focus would be more useful to you as a manager and leader?

Which do you think would be more appreciated by those around you?

Which do you think most easily leads to change?

Which do you think will give you more success in life?

A future focus is a trait of leaders, and here are some other things that make for an effective leader.

My best wishes, Paul
