Every time I go through a tough time, I think of my Dad and a book he gave me years ago when I was going through a rough patch.  The title is Tough Times Never Last; Tough People Do.  The content was helpful, but the theme was especially powerful because it came from him. Then and for the many years since, it has reminded me to stay tough.

In celebration of National Bike Month, I share this quote which includes a bike. At least – a picture of one.

Not getting where you want to get?

Many quotes could accompany this picture.

Quotes about vision, goals, plans, alignment, teamwork, etc, but because of its power and possible meanings, I decided to let it stand on its own.

Are any members of your team going in opposite directions?

Is it because you, their leader, hasn’t established a clear destination?

Or is it because your leaders haven’t done it?
