I was watching an interview by Don Miller on World-Class Customer Service with the Canlis brothers and this quote struck a cord with me.

“When it comes to casting vision, the car manufacturers have it right…the windshield has to be bigger than the rear-view mirror.”

 

This reminds me of a similar quote from famed Strategic Coach entrepreneur Dan Sullivan:

“Always make your future bigger than your past.”

Wisdom says honor the past while building the future.…but the past isn’t the future, and that can’t be your main focus. You’ve stopped wearing your high school letterman jacket because you’re no longer in high school. Know when to leave the past in the past, so you can concentrate on the future by building strategic plans in the present.
