The dark past draws you backward into futile conversations that solidify rather than solve. Complaints always focus on the past. Problems pull backward. But, solutions draw forward.
You become what you talk about.
… Leaders Solve the past by moving into the future. It’s the only way.
Talk about the past with the future in mind, tenaciously.
Rather than focusing on, “Where have we been?” say, “Where are we going?”
Shift from past tense to present and future tense language.
“What are we learning,” is better than, “What did we learn?” The latter takes you back while the former pulls you forward.
“What was done?” is only the beginning component of a, “What’s next?” conversation.
“Next time we’ll …” improves on, “What went wrong?””
