According to former professional basketball player and motivational speaker Walter Bond, “We work so hard that we don’t have time to think. We don’t have time to use innovation and creativity. We don’t have time to think about our position and our roles. We’re so busy ‘doing’ that we don’t leave time to think.”

In the first of a yearlong series of motivational and educational messages, Walter Bond discusses the importance of making time to slow down and think once in a while to focus on where you are and where you want to be.
