“The factor is, prefer it or not, the longer term occurs. Positive, tomorrow is dangerous, horrifying, and in a roundabout way represents one step nearer to the tip. But it surely additionally brings with it the opportunity of higher and the prospect to do one thing that issues.”
There’s an intentional, and extremely liberating second, the place we let go of what was, and begin constructing what will likely be. Our lives, our careers, our companies, and our manufacturers all profit from this turning level. Not forgetting the place you’ve come from, but additionally not lingering on what maybe as soon as was way back.
At this stage of our dialog with purchasers, there’s a ‘launch’ and a shift in method the place we permit and encourage everybody within the room to dream huge and lay all of the chips on the desk.
