As our society, communities, and institutions continue to navigate a world of high-tech, low-touch interactions, the time is now to develop daring leaders. So the message is simple: the time is now.
The time is now to challenge our processes, habits, and operations. The time is now to step outside our comfort zone and venture into the unknown. The time is now to live more strategically and courageously while engaging in work that's filled with impact and meaning. The time is now to stop being afraid of failure. The time is now to challenge ourselves to see, hear, and go where others won't go. The time is now to review our decision-making and thought processes. The time is now to look within while dismantling the mental and environmental fences we have constructed. The time is now to rise above impulses to shortcut the process. The time is now to learn, unlearn, and relearn while practicing active listening. The time is now to inspire the next generation of leaders to dream more, learn more, do more, and become more. The time is now to humble ourselves and to realize our ego is always lingering in the shadows, waiting to destruct and unravel everything we have ever worked for and built.
With our life, we must dare to think differently; and dare to be different — while giving ourselves permission to not have all the answers. When you think it cannot be done, just do it: the time is now!
