the-stationary-conditionAuthor Henri Amiel once said,

“The stationary condition is the beginning of the end.”

It’s a wonderfully profound statement that describes far too many of us.

It describes the paradox of life that when we stop moving forward, we start going backwards.

It explains why so many people, especially men, struggle to cope with life after retirement.

When we stop learning more about the sector that we work in, our skills soon become redundant.

When we stop trying to become better parents, our children suffer.

When we become complacent and think we have done enough, we soon lose touch.

So let me encourage you today to keep moving.

Keep growing.

Keep reading.

Know that you haven’t peaked yet and make sure that you find a way to stay hungry for more.
