Ability to overcome great adversity takes guts and perseverance. The world needs effective leaders who can think “outside-the-box” are willing to break the status quo. These leaders should have the wisdom and fortitude to challenge bureaucratic thinking to achieve new states of excellence. America is in serious trouble. The quicker people realize this fact the sooner we can focus on finding new solutions. Leaders with vision, know-how and strong turnaround experience must make the hard choices to usher in change before it is too late.
Opportunity to create an environment where highly productive people can collaborate and focus on solving problems is upon us. We need leaders who are open to new ways of working and thinking, but also have the good sense to draw upon our ingenuity, cultural diversity and traditions. History tells us that when Americans come together and focus efforts we can do almost anything. The challenge is in finding selfless leaders who are willing and able to lead.
While our challenges are surmountable, solutions are within our grasp. It comes down to needs and wiliness of everyone to do their fair share. Change happens one step at a time. We have the choice to live within a slow-growth entitlement society characterized by domestic handouts or opportunity to build a dynamic, risk taking society that grows 3% a year. Changing course will require making tough choices and shifting to new standards of performance. The future will be born out of knowledge and wiliness to try and “see things differently”. As our past dissipates, we eagerly await changes that are upon us. Transformation will come from deep within each of us. Now is the time to rebirth America to meet the ever changing ebb and flow of economic activity to meet the need of mankind everywhere.
Ultimately, everyone needs to really think and to care about what is needed. This is not a time to except that things are the way they are. Mankind deserves better. America deserves better. It is up to each and everyone one of us to get engage in creating our future. To this end, we bring forth the method, insight, know-how and opportunity. Change begins by recognizing needs and how best to satisfy these needs based on achieving the common good – it is this simple.
We begin by learning the facts! No bullshit! This means learning the “real” honest to goodness facts. It means taking the time to do the math! We cannot continue on our current course without “serious” repercussions. If we expect to have any kind of a future, we really have to think about what we are doing! Answers we seek are right in front of us. This isn’t about taking sides, or about being democrat or republican – it’s about learning the facts and then working together to get things done. We all have choices to make. What is important is to make the right choices “one-step-at-a-time”.
