“Leaders cast long shadows. If you don’t like the results you are getting –
look carefully in the mirror. Every time I have done so…inevitably I found
that I was the source of the problem. That is both the sobering reality and a huge
opportunity.” – Don McQuaig, President, MICA
Each of us can look back and remember this one individual who inspires us to be the best we can be and who makes an imprint on how we conduct ourselves in various situations.
For me this person is Don McQuaig, who passed away on this day in 2006. His unpretentious wisdom, generosity and kindness, combined with astute commercial and business insight serves me every day as a compass as I go through the day making my choices.
I hope this quote provides a moment of introspection for you and helps you have a better day.
