Look to the Future

How appropriate to begin a shift in this blog with anticipation of a new year. The current year has seen two infants added to the family, relocation of our family matriarch, and an answered call to a new job that is exciting, humbling, and daunting. Time is more precious; the future, precarious.

My dad left me his cherished copy of The Forbes Scrapbook of Thoughts on the Business of Life.  In it, he marked his favorite quotes. Today, I opened it to one by E. H. Harriman:

It is never safe to look into the future with eyes of fear.

Anticipation of anything new is best served with confidence. That applies more than ever to the coming year.
