Dream On

Today is Martin Luther King Day, a holiday marking the birthday of one of America’s greatest civil rights leaders. He inspired people to dream big. He rallied people around a singular cause and provided both a voice and a direction to the movement in order to help achieve their goals.

While America had many great civil rights leaders, it was Rev. King who took the lead in promoting non-violent civil rights activism. By doing so, Rev. King did something almost all great leaders (or great captains) do: he set the tone. As you reflect on this holiday, I hope you also take time to consider what tone you’re setting in your own life, both personally and professionally.

Happy Martin Luther King Day everyone. I’ll be back with regular postings tomorrow.
