Check out this 5 minute audio from pal and fellow leadership author Steve Farber. I love the idea of creating a magnificent future. Not just a future. Not just a "desired outcome." Not just goals. A future that inspires, fills, compels, and challenges. That's the right idea.
And if you need a bit more of this good stuff, please consider attending Steve's Extreme Leadership Summit. It might just be the best educational/catalytic experience you enjoy this year. Seriously, I have seen Steve at work and he is great. And he has lined up some terrific folks to speak at the conference with him. It is not a typical business conference - it is like a fire hose of energy, ideas, and support.
I am not an affiliate or anything, just sharing because I think it is great. Steve is offering an early bird registration savings of $300.
