Back in December, I decided to blog and post a mission daily in 2017. This journey began as a personal pledge to process our human fallibility and to share it with the world (which started at n=50).

Your mission, if you choose to accept it: Close a chapter successfully before seeking new beginnings in your next chapter. #NewBeginnings #ChapterBookends #DoorsCloseWindowsOpen

There is nothing more frustrating when a leader finds flaws in their team or company (or country) with no clear path to solutions. What’s lacking?
