CEO Spotlight with Matt Garrett (September 2020)

People say as you get older you get wiser, if you were to look back from the age of 80 and tell yourself anything, what would it be? We asked our founder and CEO, Matt Garrett, what he would say to himself. This is what came of it…

One thing Matt said he needs to be reminded of is that he is on the right track. Life can be challenging, in that we know all of our decisions create our reality and create our future. One decision can change your course. 

But something people need to remember is that whatever decisions they make, they are making progress toward their goals. Your decisions may anger someone, or cause temporary stress, but looking back those decisions those are the ones that make up who you are.

Continue to remind yourself that you are on the right track. You will make bad decisions, you might make people angry, you are likely making mistakes. You are also doing things right. When you stay disciplined to your goals, treat people with fairness and respect, it will all work out. 

Keep going, keep trying, it will all work out in the end.
