The Beginning

Posted in Educational Leadership, Global Leadership, Leadership, Leadership Development by Dr. Byron L. Ernest on February 8, 2022

My dad used to always tell me, “Nothing ever ends, it’s always the beginning of something else.” I’m not sure what has caused me to think about this, but as with most everything he said, he was right. The end of one thing leads to the beginning of another. Think about it: the beginning of a new thing comes from the completion of the prior thing. In fact, many find it hard to start something new until they have finished with something else first.

I believe my dad wanted me to look at life from a little different point of view. Maybe a little more circular instead of the linear perspective we normally take. His point was that life changes, things begin, then eventually end. So, we can celebrate an ending, continue to dwell on it, agonize over it, or we can ask ourself what new beginning awaits us?
