Hope and Productivity

Hope is not a business word: it's just that no business runs without it. When organizations and individuals lose, misplace or abuse their hopes, they also stop being effective.

Can I prove this through statistics? I probably could, given the resources of a large university business department. In this blog, I can prove it through your own experience: identify a time in your life when you lost hope, and notice how effective you were. Identify a time in the life of an organization of which you were part when that organization lost hope, and notice what happened to its results.

Hope does not guarantee great results; great results nonetheless require deep and sustained hope.

The dictionary definition of hope includes two elements: a desired outcome and a sense that it is possible. Hope is not a substitute for logistics. Hope is the foundation on which we build ideas into results.
