Ron Bruner Jr. says "You were conceived in the past. The past is responsible for the good and the bad of who we are. But it takes the wisdom of the present to be able to identify the differences.
Sometimes brutal quality decisions have to be made in order to grow beyond what we were or who we are.
Make the changes and “Leave The Rest To The Past”
Better people, better world.
