The old saying, “Those who drink the water should never forget those who dug the well,” is alive and well in Green Bay.

Packer Nation has more heroes than Marvel Comics. Among them is the legendary, Hall of Fame cornerback, Herb Adderly.

I first saw Herb on one of my football cards when I was a kid. A card I still have today. On Saturday I had the chance to meet Herb in person. He was being honored at Lambeau over the weekend, along with a couple of his teammates from the 1960s Packer teams.

As you lead today, I’m guessing there is someone who paved the way for you to do what you do.

I challenge you to spend a few minutes today expressing gratitude to one of your heroes. Write a note, send a text, or make a call, and remind them that you are grateful.



Who is someone who paved the way for you to become a leader?
