This week “Reflections,” a photo series by Tom Hussey caught my eye. The series depicts individuals well along in years looking at a reflection of a younger self. The photos are wonderful and melancholy. While they show the passage of time as it relates to our physical self, it made me think of the advise I frequently give scholars in our leadership programs,  “take time to reflect.” Leaders often pause and evaluate what they are thinking and doing to seek personal improvement. Time spent in reflection is a gift. Are you spending time on reflection each day? Do you have a personal development plan that addresses all aspects of your life including career, personal, family, spiritual, and physical?

By turning the mirror inward we can achieve what this wonderfully done series accomplishes…it gives you pause to think, about the passage of time and the lives we are living.

Tom Hussey photographed this award winning campaign for Novartis’ Exelon Patch, a prescription medicine for the treatment of mild to moderate Alzheimer’s dementia. The highly conceptual photographs depicted an older person looking at the reflection of their younger self in a mirror.
