Throw off the bowlines

Because this quote was too long for Twitter’s required max of 140 characters, I’m posting it here in support of all those officers who have put themselves out there on Social Media.

Is Social Media an easy landscape to navigate as an officer? No.

Do the ‘haters’ try and bring you down with their incessant and volatile comments? Yes.

But remember this – there are HUGE inroads to travel when SM is used properly and effectively. It is absolutely and unequivocally worth it.

And so, I leave you with this:


“Twenty years from now,

you will be more disappointed

by the things you did not do

than by the things you did do.

So, throw off the bowlines. 

Sail away from the safe harbor.

Catch the trade winds in your sails.

Explore. Dream. Discover.”


– Mark Twain.
