Writing is a dying art. I hear that all the time, but it’s not true.
The written word is still a very critical part of everyday communication. We send emails, we post Facebook updates and we answer text messages. We also draft blogs, produce annual reports and create “catchy” language for billboards.

Each birthday, I’m reminded of how much I love the aging process, odd as that may sound; maybe not so much for the slowing down of the metabolism, but for how much I’ve learned about life and about leadership. I think about the experiences I’ve had, the mistakes I’ve made and the successes I’ve enjoyed, and how each opportunity continues to mold who I am and what’s important to me.
No matter our age, as life rolls along, we need to stay mindful of assessing our growth and the direction we’re headed. We need to regularly assess our destination and push ourselves toward accomplishing new meaningful achievements.
