“The pessimist complains about the wind. The optimist expects it to change. The leader adjusts the sails.” John Maxwell

The SA Heart® Journal is undergoing a transition. After a notable service as the founding editor and, almost single-handedly, leading the Journal for over a decade – often through challenging times – Professor Anton Doubell has decided it is time to “adjust the sails” and consider supporting the Journal in a different manner. He hands over a Journal that is in a good state of health and primed to enter the next phase of its evolution. As with any transition, opportunity and likely challenges lie ahead. Of great comfort though, is that Prof Doubell will remain closely linked with the Journal and ready to lend his guidance and support to different aspects of its work. As a society, we are grateful to Prof Doubell for successfully steering the SA Heart® ship through sometimes choppy waters. As the incoming editor of the Journal, I am immensely grateful to Prof Doubell for a most comprehensive hand-over and sharing an expansive vision for the journal in the future.
