The Motto For Entrepreneurs: “Keep Moving Forward”

December 18, 2012

There are a few mottos and motivational quotes for entrepreneurs such as “just ship it” and Doing is for DOers by Jeff Lawson, CEO of Twilio. For me it’s “keep moving forward”. I use it often on Twitter as a hashtag #keepmovingforward. Keep moving forward to me simbolizes over coming obstacles, learning from mistakes/failures, starting over, never giving up, hope, a can do attitude, future opportunities, moving towards a goal and more.

What some may not know or I wonder if anyone else has figured out that I started using “keep moving forward” after watching Meet The Robinsons Disney cartoon. Take a look at one of the “keep moving forward scenes to get it.

The movie ends with a quote from Walt Disney himself.

Around here, however, we don’t look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things… and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.”
–Walt Disney

As we wrap up 2012 and look ahead to 2013, take time to reflect on what you have learned from both your good and bad life lessons. Write them down. Take a deep breath and then…. Keep Moving Forward.
