Inspired by Firsts

We are driven by firsts. 

Our first time to do something is spectacular. Growing up in Texas, I remember visiting the mountains for the first time. I remember my first kiss, my first car, my first dog, and even my first college road trip. Sorry, Jim, I still owe you money - what's the interest after 25 years by the way?

Public, professional, and cultural firsts are as equally exciting as they are inspiring. Our first trip to the moon, our first smartphone, our first planned mission to Mars. Ok. Maybe we're not quite there yet, but we're closer than we've ever been, and that's a first.



Firsts drive us. They motivate and inspire us. They send our brains a signal that something wonderful is or is about to happen. After all, we are, first and always, stewards of our future.

What firsts have inspired you?
