ProGen Member Overview

Always begin with the end in mind. Constancy to anything is the key to success. Put first things first. Think win-win. Seek first to understand, then to be understood. Constantly, sharpen the saw. Lean in to your discomfort, and grow. Build it, and they will come. Actions speak louder than words. Find the best in everyone. We can't change the cards we have been dealt, just how we play the hand. Live with integrity.

If you are a genealogist or a family historian, you have more dead friends than living ones! This, too, shall pass.

Many of the greatest words have already been spoken, but all of the best narratives are yet to be written.

Life is short, enjoy the ride! Make a difference. You can, so you will. The best is yet to come.

Remember, I told you so.
