On this day in leadership history in 1979, Muhammad Ali, at 37 years old, announced that he was retiring as world heavyweight boxing champion. Ali spent the next 37 years later continuing to enjoy his family, post-boxing career in several areas, and faced his Parkinson’s Disease battle head on. What’s the leadership lesson? Slowing down or retiring does not mean stopping all activity and influence. Continue your purpose and use the knowledge and experience that you’ve gained to serve others!
