There is no way to move an organization forward if we are not willing to accept temporary setbacks. Sometimes, we get shut down and have to wait a few months to try again and sometimes it is a few years. I had to wait 8 years to make a change I wanted to as an instructor. Back then, I couldn’t get the support. But in my later years, I had the rank, connections and understanding to make the change happen. Sometimes we have to shelf our idea, but we rarely have to toss it in the trash. Tomorrow’s problem may the solution you created today.
