What's Your Origin Story?
You are likely familiar with the phrase, “in order to get to where you are going, you need to know where you came from”.
It’s a phrase that has significant implications for anyone serious about building a business, brand or career of significance.
Because it stands to reason, that if you’re really not mindful and appreciative about where you came from, you likely don’t know where you’re at and where you are going. Which means you're probably headed down the wrong path.
How often do you get so caught up fretting about where you are NOT and where you think you SHOULD be... while failing to appreciate the struggles and triumphs of your own journey?
It’s an easy trap to fall into.
Which is why it’s always a good idea to use the lessons of history as a way to plot a course for the future.

I'm amazed every time I come back to Vancouver at how much it's changed. You go away for a month and there's three more skyscrapers.
