Commemorating Martin Luther King Jr. Day — Keep Moving Forward
Let's commemorate Monday's national holiday for Dr. King with a look back at my post from 2012…
A Lean Lesson from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
And, here a quote that should remind folks of Kaizen and continuous improvement:
(hat tip to Allison Meyers)
If you can't fly, then run.Martin Luther King, Jr.
if you can't run, then walk,
if you can't walk, then crawl,
but whatever you do,
you have to keep moving forward.
I also invite you to check out the “Root Cause Racism” website that my friend Deondra Wardelle has put together, as we take a day to reflect…

[…] Martin Luther King, Jr. Let’s all be respectful, fair, and just in the work that we do. And see this image and quote from 2013. And my friend Jon Miller has a better collection of MLK quotes […]
Passion for something manifests itself in a willingness to never give up, even when it seems you’ve hit the wall. Continuous improvement is a relentless pursuit, a mindset that difficult problems can be solved. Great post!
The main waste Dr. King was committed to eliminate, was that created by a non-inclusive society.
“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the colour of their ski n, but by the content of their character.”
Here’s a blog post by Dr. Eric Dickson (an upcoming podcast guest) that reflects on Dr. King’s words:
“Each of us can be great because each of us can serve“
And our friend Jess Orr posted this on LinkedIn:
“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”
