The Rudder

I have been doing IT for more than 35 years, and on my birthday, I was inspired by my past, I remember almost everything that has brought me here.

Then I see the new people in my current company and wish that they would look around them, and remember what they see and do. This is a rudder they are seeing. Every thing they are thinking, doing, deciding on is their rudder, it will lead and point them in a direction. And I want to remind them that this rudder is behind them, and if they do not take hold of the rudder, it could lead them where they are not dreaming of, and not wishing for. But a rudder is behind the boat, you have to choose to steer your boat towards what you want to be, where you want to go.

Fate will handle your rudder and could take you astray if you let it, be aware of short term thinking, and dream big.
