I was once told you’re either moving forward or backward, or up or down…whichever, but the point is you’re never static…personally, professionally, organizationally.
Attitude is about choice. Progress is about choice.
The other day I heard a good visible analogy for this idea…
In most situations, you have to decide if you’re going to act in one of two ways:
1) Be on the heels of your feet, on the ‘receiving end’, falling back. Or…
2) Be on the balls of your feet, leaning forward.
I like that visual…a tangible reminder that can be used every day to focus on forward-moving behavior.
