We have no choice but to dare to be great

In September I had blogged about some of the stories told at BIF-6 and the random encounters of unusual suspects at the Collaborative Innovation Summit. In particular I wrote about Keith Yamashita's story and how it impacted me.

Since then I have reminded myself and others when we are planning or considering action, that we should dare to be great, and have found often that this simple sentence often ignites imagination and inspires the conversation to steer towards more ambitious goals and more significant change. The power of collectively imagining a "greater" future never ceases to amaze me and I am grateful to Keith for planting this seed in my mind.

Now the video recording of Keith's presentation at BIF-6 is available online. I highly recommend that you view it, and that you do so in a quite uninterrupted moment to enjoy the full power of his story.
