No community, chamber, or business leader wants to be labeled as one that thinks too small. William Ward once said, “The pessimist complains about the wind, the optimist expects it to change; the realist adjusts the sails”. As a leader, which category do you find yourself falling in?
I recall a conversation with a good friend. He was lamenting the lack of both vision and creative thinking engulfing his small community. Listening to him, my mind kept replaying the dozens of similar conversations I have heard countless times.
