Even before we were born, there were people fighting our battles, in part or whole. Initially, it’s your immediate family, then it extends to friends and colleagues. You might not know it, but they’ve defended you where you’re not present.
As we take a bit of time out to reflect on the year, it might be time to check in with your warriors and say: “Thank you.”
The year is almost over. The journey, however, hopefully continues. If the journey continues, the old African proverb holds: “If you want to go fast, go alone. But if you want to go far, go as a team.”
