Thought-full Thursday: Building the Future, Starting Now


Every Thursday, we provide you with a thoughtful way to coach yourself – something all leaders need to do. I thought it would be fun and interesting to start incorporating quotes from the writings of some of my favorite bloggers out there. We start today with Art Petty, who has a practical and insightful blog called Management Excellence and a great new collection of leadership wisdom (in essay format! Quick and insightful reads!) called Leadership Caffeine that would make a great holiday gift for you or that favorite leader in your life.

So take five and enjoy the inspirational quote and reflect on the questions that follow. Your comments and answers to the questions are most welcome!


Find an opportunity every day to be someone building the future and fighting the gravitational pull of mediocrity and malaise. ~Art Petty


  • What opportunity can you see before you today to do something exceptional?
  • Who can help you?
