The “Colonel’s” VFV Motivational/Inspirational Quotes & Message of the Day!

Good “Tuesday!” Morning “Band of Brothers & Sisters,” and all great connections. Welcome from the “Colonel’s Foxhole” in The Woodlands, TX — 7 June 2022!

Today’s Message is: “Dwell Day!” Why Not?

“Leaders don’t dwell in the past. They learn from their past mistakes and lessons learned, good or bad, but they don’t dwell. Their objective is to avoid having the same bad things or mistakes repeat themselves repeatedly going forward. The secret is to acknowledge the mistake, learn everything you can about the why, when, where, and how; lead and teach others from what you’ve learned about the mistake; and move on and move out smartly – there are missions to be completed today and in the future. No time for dwelling!” — COL (Ret) Mikel Burroughs
