Keep moving forward

One of my favorite Disney movies is “Meet the Robinsons.” From its futuristic storyline to its corny humor, I always change the channel to that movie if I see it on. Throughout each scene, there is one scripted line that is said over and over – “keep moving forward.” I didn’t think much about it until the ending scene when a quote from Walt Disney himself shows up on the screen. It reads:

“We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.”

That’s an important life lesson there, friends. It’s a noteworthy message whether you are in college, just starting a new job, or maybe a seasoned veteran in your career. You could summarize that phrase as “don’t be complacent.”

If there’s anything you take out of this blog and my written words, know you are meant to keep learning and exploring in your career. As a young professional, I know there’s so much more for me to learn about. I need to keep moving forward and growing in life and my career. The same goes for you. You never know what you will discover until you try something new. 

Oh, and if you ever see that “Meet the Robinsons” is on TV, flip the channel to it and you’ll be glad you did. For me, it’s a nice reminder to “keep moving forward.”
